The issue of the social economy, i.e., social enterprises (SEs) was revived in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis, when the global labor markets faced millions of lost jobs, flanked capital markets, as well as the inability of the welfare systems to cope with the protracted spells of unemployment and significant loss of skills. As a response, many governments and the EU embraced and supported the concept of social economy and entrepreneurship in their attempt to restructure the labor market and recover the economy (European Commission, 2013a, 2013b).
