Stakeholder Brief #10 | Changing social enterprises in changing territories: a multi-level perspective

This Stakeholder Brief summarises the discussions that took place during the fifth meeting of Working Group 2 “Exploring new industries”, held in Zagreb in June 2021 as part of the COST Action “Empowering the next generation of social enterprise scholars” (Empower-SE). Co-organised by the University of Zagreb (Faculty of Law and Faculty of Political Science) and the research centre LEST from CNRS and Aix-Marseille University, the meeting focused on “Changing social enterprises in changing territories: a multi-level perspective”.

The meeting was held in the WESPA Spaces venue, which is a large coworking space that hosts various types of organisations—including social enterprises, start-ups and more “traditional” companies—and offers a variety of digital and other innovative resources for sharing.

This full-day workshop was conceived as a high-profile academic event aimed at exchanging initial thoughts in an incipient field of research covered by the EMPOWER-SE COST Action thematic line: multi-level analysis, territory and social enterprise. It gathered scholars from ten different countries and different disciplines (sociology, economics, political sciences, management, etc.) and some practitioners from Croatia interested in the role of social enterprises in territorial development and governance in a multi-level perspective.
