Negotiating tensions: how do social enterprises in the homelessness field balance social and commercial considerations?

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

    Abstract

    Book abstract: Social housing has long been delivered through mixed economy mechanisms, but there has been little focus in housing studies on what this means for housing organisations themselves. This book presents recent international research applying concepts of social enterprise and hybridity to illuminate organisational behaviour in the housing sector. It addresses critiques of the explanatory value of these concepts by exploring their underlying meanings and their application to diverse case studies worldwide.
