Seminar with presentation of Professor Aimable André Dufatanye

Please join us this Monday, September 3rd, 2018 at 14:00 for a seminar with presentation of Professor Aimable André Dufatanye from the Catholic University of Lyon. Professor Dufatanye is currently visiting ISS UW in the framework of FAB-MOVE project.
As part of the seminar, Professor Dufatanye will talk about his research on social entrepreneurship in France, the USA and South Africa, and the Polish FAB-MOVE team will share conclusions from their research.

Social enterprises (generally understood as combining the logic of businesses with the pursuit of social goals) and social innovation are fervently debated topics among policy-makers and scientists. This seminar aims at discussing the concept of social enterprises in different cultural, political, and economic contexts.
Discussion will be framed within an international comparative approach and will focus on identifying and analysing contextual aspects and critical factors for the development of social enterprises in France, South Africa, Poland and the USA. The definition, history, and evolution of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship in these countries will be analyzed, with an emphasis placed on regulations, policies, and evidence-based data. The seminar will also focus on the nature of the relationship between social enterprise and CSR (corporate social responsibility), highlighting examples of best practices in each of the four countries discussed.
Participants are invited to challenge the speakers’ presentations and to share their insights or experiences on social enterprise and/or innovation in their own countries.

This seminar is supported by the international project “For a Better Tomorrow: Social Enterprises on the Move” (FAB-MOVE), funded by the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE).

The meeting will take place in room 417 in the Robert Zajonc Institute for Social Studies, Stawki 5/7, 4th floor.
