Handbook of Research Methods on Social Entrepreneurship

Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by the late Richard Seymour, formerly Senior Lecturer, Programme Director, Innovation and Enterprise and Co-Director, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research Group, The University of Sydney Business School, Sydney, Australia

Defining ‘social entrepreneurship’ has in the past proved problematic, and debate continues concerning what it does and does not entail and encompass. This unique book frames the debates surrounding the phenomenon and argues that many of the difficulties relating to the study of social entrepreneurship are rooted in methodological issues. Highlighting these issues, the book sets out ideas and implications for researchers using alternative methodologies.
