Participation is the key: mapping the governance of social enterprises across Europe – models and good practices
The Rights to Growth (‘R2G’) project ran between February 2018 and September 2019 and was carried out with the support of the European Commission by a partnership including European level organisations (DIESIS, CECOP, ENSIE, ETUC and SEE) on both the workers’ and employers’ sides. A wide range of national organisations participated in the project either as partners (ACT Grupa, AVISE, CGM, COCETA, FISE, Legacoopsociali, RISE, SEUK) or were involved as members of European umbrella organisations. The project selected a sample of 26 social enterprises from 13 EU countries and examined their practices regarding governance and participation.
Here below the two final publications of the project:
PARTICIPATION IS THE KEY: MAPPING THE GOVERNANCE OF SOCIAL ENTERPRISES ACROSS EUROPE – MODELS AND GOOD PRACTICES – FINAL CONTENT REPORT

PARTICIPATION IS THE KEY: MAPPING THE GOVERNANCE OF SOCIAL ENTERPRISES ACROSS EUROPE – MODELS AND GOOD PRACTICES – CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The publication brings out and discusses a number of important and interesting issues regarding the way that participation in governance can improve outcomes for the various stakeholders in businesses. This leads to a number of recommendations for different actors at European, national and local levels.
