Social Enterprises in Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


The concept of the social enterprise has gained considerable attention in a limited number of jurisdictions. In the United States, hybrid social enterprise forms, including Delaware’s public benefit corporation, the benefit corporation in over three dozen states, and the private B Corp certification offered by the nonprofit B Lab, have become prominent challenges to the long tradition of shareholder capitalism. In the United Kingdom, Community Interest Companies can benefit from public subsidies in the form of tax preferences. In others, like Germany, a robust welfare state has caused social enterprise to spread much less quickly.
