PhD-position on ‘Pathways towards resilient social enterprises’


We are looking for a new team member to fill a PhD-position on ‘Pathways towards resilient social enterprises’! Social enterprises are a growing trend in business as a way to address societal issues. They combine a financially sustainable model with an ambition to create high societal impact and address many of today’s social and systemic problems (like poverty, health, inequality, climate change). You will aim at identifying the various models that exist in financing a social enterprise and will study the relationship between the various investment models and the type of governance models that can be developed to enhance the resilience and impact of  SEs as organisations over longer periods of time. A mixed-methods approach is adopted, with an interdisciplinary orientation.
