Third Sector Research Centre

Funded by the ESRC and Cabinet Office

The Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research (CEEDR) played a leading role in developing research programmes on social enterprises as part of the Third Sector Research Centre at Birmingham University funded by ESRC, Cabinet Office and Barrow Cadbury Trust

The Approach

The Centre worked on a distinct stream of research themes focusing on social enterprise and the particular contribution that social enterprises can make within the third sector. This stream of work cut across all of the other research programmes, aiming to identify the particular characteristics and contributions of social enterprise within the sector. The Centre was led by Birmingham University in Partnership with Southampton University.

TSRC Activities

The research themes addressed so far included:

  • Social enterprise theory and discourse
  • Public policy and the role of social enterprise
  • Measuring social value in social enterprise
  • Management and finance issues in social enterprise
