Title: Social Entrepreneurship as a New Paradigm: Rethinking Development Intervention Ideologies
Author: Zebrowski, Rachael Lauren, 1984-
Abstract: After years of formalized international development efforts, the world continues to face significant problems. Humanity's greatest challenges - poverty, hunger, disease, and environmental degradation - remain prevalent and in some cases have even worsened. One reason the world's social problems are so resistant is an ideological failure to conceptualize a more inclusive economic order, one that values economic progress along with social justice. In light of this failure, innovative business models have emerged that create transformational change by integrating social value and economic profit, often referred to as social entrepreneurship. By questioning the structural and ideological boundaries that limit the relationship between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, this thesis argues for social entrepreneurship as a viable means to overcome the predominant belief that economic and social progress are mutually exclusive goals.
