Impact assessment for social enterprises: Contextualisation or Generalisation?

Social entrepreneurship has emerged as an active field of practice and research in last three decades. New opportunities and dilemmas relating to impact assessment for social enterprises across countries, sectors, organisational forms, and the stages of development have emerged as an important area of concern for different stakeholders. ISSE 2017 will shed light on the impact generated by social enterprises and the systematic ways to measure it.
