The social economy is an entrepreneurial, not-for-profit sector that seeks to enhance the social, economic and environmental conditions of communities. We come to understanding that enterprises are a component of the social economy that are run like businesses, producing goods and services for the market economy, but they are being managed in pursuit of social and environmental goals through their operations. Increasing economic interaction, allied to the social and political changes evident in many parts of the world, especially in the enlarging European Union and associated countries, has created a need for more sophisticated perception of the social, political and cultural environments, which govern our societies. The Journal, combined with interdisciplinary contributions on international developments in social economics, makes a genuinely valuable input into current comprehension of the subject and the growth of new ideas.

Topics of interest for the above area include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Recent Issues in Sociological Research.
  • Recent Issues in Economic Development.
  • Interdisciplinary Approach to Economics and Sociology.

The journal serves as a forum for the exchange of information and views between academics and practitioners, NGOs and the community, data producers and users.
