Studenteropgave: Speciale

Abstrakt

How can one establish what it is precisely that makes a visible difference in the way we think about tackling societal and environmental problems in the contemporary society? Nonetheless, what is needed in order for that difference to actually take place? Private, public and third-sector actors hurry to determine an ultimate solution to the world’s problems, but couldn’t it be that a combination of these forces and strategies proves more effective? If so, what are the interests involved in such a partnership? And could this turn out to bring disinterested value for the society? These are the questions that we hope to answer, at least partly, in this structuralist study of the discourses in investment, philanthropy and social entrepreneurship in the Scandinavian landscape.
