image of Social entrepreneurship and social innovation in the Nordic countries  

The Nordic countries are currently facing major challenges with regard to maintaining and further developing social welfare. Against this background, the Nordic Council of Ministers decided in autumn 2013 to appoint a working group to map initiatives to support social entrepreneurship and social innovation in the Nordic countries. The main purpose of this mapping is to increase knowledge of initiatives to support social entrepreneurship and social innovation in the Nordic Region in the work to include disadvantaged groups in employment and society. This report presents the results from the mapping and the working group's recommendations for further follow-up.

Examples of terms and definitions in the Nordic countries

In the initial phase of the work, the working group conducted a review of the terms and definitions used in the Nordic countries. The review revealed that a number of different terms are used that partly, but not entirely, overlap the understanding in the mandate.
