Governance, Social entrepreneurship, Theoretical basis


In the abundant literature governance refers to a set of principles, practices and mechanisms that govern the coordination actions and the interactions of the company with its internal and external actors as well as the distribution of the power of its actors in its environment. The interest of governance in social entrepreneurship is to respond to the needs of these actors in a collective and not individual dimension, it aims to ensure the social purpose of the company and its multidimensional objectives.

In this article, the objective is twofold: on the one hand, we will discuss the theoretical foundations of governance in general and their contribution to social entrepreneurship in particular, according to the different approaches, based on the hypothesis of the humanistic and non-opportunistic behavior of the entrepreneur who seeks to change the world and guarantee the well-being of the enterprise and its stakeholders. On the other hand, it is a question of highlighting the challenges that the social enterprise faces in order to guarantee a democratic and participative governance.
