Social enterprise : at the crossroads of market, public policies and civil society by Marthe Nyssens( Book )

17 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work develops a theory of social enterprise through a comparative analysis of social enterprises in Europe and examines three theoretical ideas: that they have a complex mixture of goals, that they mobilise different kinds of market and non-market resources and that they are embedded in the political context
Co-production : enhancing the role of citizens in governance and service delivery by Leda Stott( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Co-production is widely presented as a new and more inclusive way of developing and delivering public goods and services. Responding to concerns about the extent to which the state, on the one hand, and the market, on the other, can realistically provide public services that adequately meet the needs of different citizens, the concept of co-production has been positioned as integral to a new form of governance involving the contribution of multiple actors to public services. According to the European Commission (2011:19), growing interest in integrated and participatory service models that incorporate stronger connections between the public sector and civil society actors such as NGOs, community-based organisations and associations, and citizens themselves, has emerged because of disaffection with ‘the traditional, heavily statist system and the unequal liberal system - both equally as inefficient as each other - for providing public goods or public services
Female (un)employment and work-life balance : a discussion paper from the Employment Thematic Network by Nathalie Wuiame( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the Trento conference and meeting on female (un) employment and work-life balance held on 7-9 March 2018, inequalities were once again highlighted and gave the audience a clear sense of déjà vu. Why is progress so slow? Why, despite policies promoted for so many years, does gender equality still seem so far from being achieved? What can be done to improve the situation? The objective of this paper is, after taking a snapshot of the policy context, to first give an updated overview of the different situations of men and women in the labour market, focusing on some key issues: participation (considering the EU target of 75% labour market participation by 2020), conditions of participation, and the possibility of combining work and private responsibilities. Regarding the latter aspect, it should be emphasised that this is not just about parenting and childcare but all care responsibilities (for elderly, ill or handicapped relatives). The EU is aware of the urgency of adapting the labour market to new demands from workers as well as employers for more flexible forms of work. However, work organisation has not all evolved in this way; the assumption that the "ideal worker" is free from any responsibilities other than work is still current, and women take on the bulk of family-related tasks while still being active in the labour-market. This is why the A new start to support work-life balance for parents and carers initiative is crucial in addressing the challenges of work-life balance that working parents and families face. Its aim is to change and modernise the legal and policy framework as well as work organisation to allow workers to better balance their care and professional responsibilities. This paper will also examine what the contribution of the Structural and Investment Funds - and especially the ESF - can be, in terms of both female employment and worklife balance initiatives. It will present some interesting practices financed by the ESF or public authorities, which are addressing key issues relating to a more gender-equal and sensitive labour market, but also highlight some challenges. The report concludes with some recommendations on how current and future European funds can better support female employment and gender equality through fighting gender stereotypes and gender segregation, changing the prevalent working culture, providing high-quality and affordable care solutions, and supporting women in specific situations such as victims of domestic violence
