This course will introduce students to the relevance of social enterprise to international development, and prepare them for collaborative community problem solving. It enables students to engage with practical questions of how to make social enterprise work, both at a local level and as part of international development. Students will examine three key questions: why should I care?; what could I do?; and what should I know? As well as examining the more theoretical and sociological issues outlined above, students will carry out their own case study of a social enterprise or related project.
