Proposed Approaches to Social Impact Measurement  (12/01/2015)

Catalog N. : KE-04-14-665-EN-N

Money invested in a social enterprise should be used efficiently in delivering its social mission. Also, where public funding is used, efficient delivery of outcomes or savings in public spending must be demonstrated. A consistent way of measuring social impact is therefore needed. In October 2012, a Social Impact Measurement expert sub-group was set up by the GECES (“Groupe d’Experts de la Commission sur l’Entrepreneuriat Social”) in order to advise on a methodology which could be applied across the European social entrepreneurship sector. This helps social fund managers decide whether they will invest in a particular enterprise and will help investors and grant givers see if the enterprises they have backed have achieved their stated social objectives, but is also of wider application, both internally and externally. This publication sets out the proposed approaches to measurement used for assessment and follow-up.

The Missing Entrepreneurs 2014 - Policies for inclusive entrepreneurship in Europe  (18/12/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-02-14-710-EN-N

This publication examines how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation by encouraging business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented social groups in entrepreneurship. It shows that there is substantial potential to combat unemployment and stimulate social inclusion by promoting entrepreneurship in populations such as women, youth, seniors, the unemployed, and migrants, if the specific problems they face can be addressed and if entrepreneurship policies are opened up to all. Policy discussion in this report focusses on business creation from unemployment, entrepreneurship by ethnic minority groups, business development services for start-ups and the interaction between social security systems and inclusive entrepreneurship policies, and offers the inspiration of existing good practices from across the European Union.

Catalog N. : KE-AZ-14-002-EN-N

Facing the crisis - The coping strategies of unemployed people in Europe  (27/11/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-04-14-928-EN-N

This report explores how those households that are particularly exposed to poverty and long-term unemployment manage to deal with the blows dealt by the economic crisis. It asks the key questions: is unemployment in a period of crisis really the cause of spiralling breaks in social links, or can it also be the start of a process of coping, based on strengthening those links? If so, to what extent? It draws on the findings of three studies, both qualitatively and quantitatively. This publication is available in printed and electronic format in English.
