Purpose – Fair trade organisations (FTOs) have been taken quite early as examples of Social Enterprises (SE) and have contributed to the shaping of the SE concept. The purpose of this paper is to examine more deeply the link between FTOs and SE, both at a conceptual and at an empirical level. Design/methodology/approach – First, different theoretical frameworks of SE are introduced and confront FT to each of these frameworks. The second step is an empirical study of FTOs across four European countries to illustrate and deepen the links between FT and SE, focusing on the goals and the governance structures of FTOs. Findings – All the FTOs combine in some way economic, social and sometimes also political goals. FTOs are thus coherent to the “hybrid goals” nature of SEs. FTOs' governance is also quite specific and often innovative in terms of organisational architecture and stakeholders' involvement. Some FTOs are closer to the European – participatory – approach while others are closer to US – individual – approaches. Finally, the governance structures of FTOs seem to reflect quite well their goal mix. Research limitations/implications – This paper provides a more solid basis for the often implicit link between FT and SE. Future researches could use this work to explore specific topics of the SE literature in the context of FT (e.g. stakeholders' involvement). The FT example could also be used to examine further the shifting boundaries of the SE reality. Originality/value – The originality of this paper is to apply the SE concept to a specific field and to show how, within this field, there is at the same time a diversity of organisations, reflecting the diversity of SE approaches; and a range of specific features (especially in terms of goal mix and governance) distinguishing SEs from other types of organisations.

La définition du Conseil wallon de l’économie sociale met l’accent sur les spécificités d’organisations privées non capitalistes qui défendent des valeurs : objectif de service, autonomie de gestion, participation démocratique des membres. Mais deux questions se posent : l’économie sociale recouvre-t-elle surtout des activités marchandes ? Son champ d’action privilégié est-il l’insertion des personnes sans emploi ? Pour éviter l’instrumentalisation, le concept d’économie solidaire, quant à lui, insiste davantage sur une économie plurielle faite de logiques économiques variées qui relève de grands défis de société.

This book provides the very first overview of social enterprise models emerging in all 15 countries which were member states of the European Union in the 1990's. Such an overview is based on a common analytical grid which is known as the EMES approach to social enterprise. The second part offers theoretical lines along which many subsequent works have been developed. Funded by the 4th Framework Programme of the European Commission's DG Research, the 4-year research project which resulted in that book and was entitled EMES (the acronym of the project's title in French - émergence de l'entreprise sociale) also served as a first building block for the creation of the EMES European Research Network. see www.emes.net [less ▲]

This paper tries to show how the concept of social enterprise is increasingly used in many countries. In Europe, the most significant steps have been taken by the Italian parliament in the early 90’s and since 2002 by the UK government which has decided to map and promote social enterprises. From a scientific point of view, the approach built by the EMES European Research Network, based on comparative research in all EU countries, provides a solid basis for further theoretical and empirical work as well as new insights into the whole social economy.
