    Main Point
    The study of social enterprise is becoming enrichened through the adoption of novel theoretical lenses that are adding greatly to our understanding of this diverse and economically and socially important sector.

    Key Points
    Globally, the sector remains encumbered by the perennial constraint of finance and funding.
    The management and behaviour of human resources, from senior management to volunteers, is qualitatively different in social enterprises compared to for-profit organizations.
    The heterogeneity of the social enterprise sector calls for future research that is unconstrained by the real and perceived limits of existing theory, methods and language.
