Abstract

The paper argues that visions of social enterprise and its relationship with the third sector vary significantly from those that loudly or silently see social enterprise as conventional businesses and therefore as ‘outsiders’ to the third sector to those that see them as the ‘missing link’ between the third sector and markets and even as a ‘panacea’ to solve social problems. The paper critically examines these views in the UK context and concludes with some policy considerations in relation to the place of social enterprise within the third sector and future policy scenarios.
