Abstract

Academic research has a distinctive contribution to make to the development of Social Investment and Impact Investing, but it is currently lagging considerably behind practice. While practitioners develop new initiatives and tools, secure new investment deals, and convene conferences, academics are very much in the first stages of establishing this field of enquiry. By making the current status of academic research into Social Investment and Impact Investing more visible, this chapter aims to make the field more accessible and, ultimately, encourage greater volumes of academic work in this area. To this end, this chapter provides a meta-analysis of the current research landscape, followed by a proposed agenda for future academic research.
