Ni She, Eidin and Burton, Lorelle J. and Danaher, Patrick Alan, eds. (2018) Social capital and enterprise in the modern state. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Cham, Switzerland, pp. 3-19. ISBN 978-3-319-68114-6

Abstract

Given the global crises confronting the world today, it is important to interrogate the notion of 'the modern state' and to evaluate its effectiveness in providing security and services for its populations, including the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. This book investigates the modern state’s capacity to serve its constituents by examining the organisations that facilitate two key elements of contemporary living: social capital and social enterprise. These elements are explored in a series of rich case studies located in Australia, Ireland and Bangladesh, with broader implications for policy and practice in the rest of the world. The case studies highlight the growing importance of social enterprise and social entrepreneurship in fostering social capital and in contributing to the idea of 'the enabling state'. This book will appeal to researchers, policy-makers and community leaders working in business, education, employment pathways, homelessness, housing, local government, mental health, public administration and refugee resettlement.
