Gluns, Zimmer: „Parole, parole, parole“ – discourses and innovative social entrepreneurship

Danielle Gluns/ Annette Zimmer: „Parole, parole, parole“ – discourses and innovative social entrepreneurship Research about social entrepreneurship has so far focused on successful entrepreneurs and their characteristics, while the interplay of different actors has remained understudied.

The article attempts to provide insights on the local embeddedness of social entrepreneurs, with a special focus on the role of discourses for socially innovative activities.  The data on which this article is based was collected in the framework of the EU-funded WILCO research project (Welfare Innovations at the Local Level in Favour of Cohesion). The welfare discourse in Münster, Germany, is analysed in a conceptual framework of discursive hegemony based on Gramsci. The dominant frames of the welfare discourse in this city and their impact on the evolution and implementation of social innovations will be demonstrated by an example of local labour market and migrant integration policy.
