Theorizing Social Innovation to Address Marginalization.

Nicholls, Alex, Von Jacobi, Nadia and Chiappero-Martinetti, Enrica (2017) Theorizing Social Innovation to Address Marginalization. Journal of Social Entrepreneurship, 8 (3). pp. 265-270.


Social innovation has increasingly been referred to as a potential driver for – transformative and disruptive -- social change because it offers the potential to provide solutions to social needs that the current institutional status quo neglects or only partially attends to. In this introduction to the special issue on social innovation and marginalisation, the editors provide an overview of the theoretical framework, with which the two phenomena can be put into connection. It introduces the Extended Social Grid Model, in which an institutionalist perspective on social forces can be combined with the capability approach that puts human agency at its core.
