The Journal of Enterprising Communities focuses on enterprise, people and places, a topic critical in the global economy as it is evolving. The journal aims to examine the successes and failures of such ventures in a critical way, looking for useful theoretical perspectives, distilling key practices and determining common pitfalls. It also identifies important policy issues and options, and communicates these findings amongst scholars, practitioners and policy makers.
The journal publishes research articles and encourages rigorous and well-developed case studies of all types. Successful practice has much to offer theory, and best practices can be distilled from the stories of those who have and are succeeding.
Increasingly the events critical to the sustainable prosperity of people (culturally, socially, economically and environmentally) are being played out at the nexus of the local or the community (people in places) and the transnational (corporations, groups and movements of the civil sector, and supranational organizations and agreements). More and more, business enterprises are the vehicle being used by communities of people in pursuit of sustainable prosperity as they define it, and this definition goes far beyond simple economic criteria. As a result, these enterprises are not always or even often businesses in the classic capitalist, or neo-classic economic sense. Rather they are enterprises with much broader goals, many of them social/cultural/environmental rather than economic, and they exhibit diverse forms of ownership, organization and operation. In a wide variety of places, among diverse groups of people, these efforts are succeeding. Unfortunately, in many more places and for many groups, such efforts are failing or they are not being attempted at all. This new journal will attempt to both create and inform the debate in this exciting area of research.
