WORKING PAPERS/ARTICLES/STUDENT THESES AS THEY EMERGE ACADEMIC INTEREST IN SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Academic interest in social enterprise and 'social entrepreneurship' first took hold with courses in the USA in the early 1990's and in 2003 the University of Oxford in the UK established the 'Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship.' Since 2004 this University has also held the annual World Social Entrepreneurship Forum. More recently the academic interest in social enterprise has reached South East Asia; the Asian Institute of Management in the Philippines and the Volans Institute in Singapore have significantly raised the profile of social entrepreneurship and social enterprise. However it is also apparent that the widely cited research which has been undertaken has not focused on Cambodia in great detail.

The RUPP Master of Arts Programme is the first academic department in Cambodia to embark on integrating the social enterprise literature with a development studies programme and it also aims to pioneer research which can inform practitioners about what social enterprise might mean in Cambodia and the impacts it can have in amongst local NGO's and local communities.
