-Murray, G, 2018, 'Historical perspective on social enterprise as a public health initiative', CommonHealth briefing paper series: paper number 5, 405KB
This briefing paper reflects on the emerging findings of Project 1; ‘the history project’. The broad aims of the project have been, firstly, to chart the history of Social Enterprise in Scotland from the late 1970s, through the turbulent 1990s, to the type of social enterprise that we recognise in the 21st century. Secondly, the project has also considered the long history of connections between social enterprise, health and wellbeing.
