Event description
Social entrepreneurship, service co-production and community empowerment – who wins who loses?

About this Event

The results of handing over power to local communities to shape policies and services will be examined at GCU's next Professorial Lecture.

Professor Artur Steiner, of the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, will explore the challenges faced by bottom-up community development projects as they strive to achieve their objectives.

Entitled 'Social entrepreneurship, service co-production and community empowerment – who wins, who loses?' , the lecture will highlight how the public's involvement in service co-production has been promoted in policy documents as a way to deliver responsive and more efficient services.

Using evidence gathered from the field, it will look at how the process works and who benefits from devolving decision-making power.

A Professor in Social Entrepreneurship and Community Development, Artur's research focuses on community disadvantage and how, through co-production, community entrepreneurship, and social innovation, citizens can tackle persistent socio-economic challenges.

The lecture will appeal to community members, third sector practitioners, policymakers as well as academics with an interest in community development and community empowerment, service co-production, social entrepreneurship and social innovation.

This event will take place on Tuesday, March 16, via Zoom, 4pm-5pm
