As Public Goes Private, Social Emerges: The Rise of Social Enterprise

Mark Hayllar () and Roger Wettenhall ()

Public Organization Review, 2013, vol. 13, issue 2, 207-217

Abstract: This article explores the relationship between social enterprise and a much-longer known set of arrangements generally comprehended as “public enterprise” (or “state-owned enterprise”). It considers the decline in some contexts in the use of, and interest in, public enterprise that reflects the impact of the privatization movement, and the rise of social enterprise as an alternative form—with speculation about cause-and-effect connections between these movements. An exploration of this sort may contribute in the longer term to a better understanding of the place of “public”, “social” and “community” values and structures within the general framework of governance.
