Defining 'social entrepreneurship' has in the past proved
problematic, and debate continues concerning what it does and does
not entail and encompass. This unique book frames the debates
surrounding the phenomenon and argues that many of the difficulties
relating to the study of social entrepreneurship are rooted in
methodological issues. Highlighting these issues, the book sets out
ideas and implications for researchers using alternative
methodologies. Contributors expertly present practical guides for
researchers, setting out appropriate strategies and methods that
can be adopted to explore and understand social entrepreneurship.
Chapters deal with research strategies such as storytelling, action
research and the case study, as well as the methods appropriate for
understanding discourse, large data sets, and networks. The book
also explores some challenges for researchers, and will be of
particular interest to early career researchers or researchers
first approaching the field.
