Health micro-insurance systems have experienced a fast development for some fifteen years in sub-Saharan Africa as a means of improving the access of the poor to healthcare services. The present article focuses mainly on community-based health insurance (CBHI) systems, as they currently constitute one of the most developed forms of health micro-insurance. However, it must be acknowledged that the enrolment rates remain particularly weak and coverage of the target population only rarely reaches 10%. Several authors have already observed this fact and undertaken research on the factors which influence enrolment. Nevertheless, the methodologies used, size of the samples, characteristics of the surveyed individuals, inclusion or not of non-members in the surveys, geographical areas etc. vary a lot from one author to the other. This is why this article aims at synthesizing the empirical studies carried out to date and to identify major concurring results beyond methodological differences. We finally come out with two factors which seem to play a major role and six others which seem to have a significant influence on enrolment, while surveys do not confirm the role of various other variables. We conclude with some lessons regarding the roles of the promoters and supporting NGOs in the establishment of CBHI schemes. [less ▲]

Alors que pratiquement personne ne s'y référait il y a encore une quinzaine d'années, la notion d'entreprise sociale est en train d'opérer une étonnante percée des deux côtés de l'Atlantique. Avant d'aborder l'émergence du concept d'entreprise sociale, nous rappelons d'abord brièvement les principales approches qui, depuis un quart de siècle, ont été développées pour saisir les réalités du troisième secteur (1). Nous essayons ensuite de voir dans quelle mesure, au sein de ce dernier, on peut identifier un nouvel entreprenariat social (2) et comment, en Europe, on l'a appréhendé sur le plan conceptuel (3). Ensuite, nous présentons les premiers développements théoriques qu'a favorisé l'émergence de ce nouveau concept (4). Enfin, nous montrons comment on peut enrichir la démarche européenne en la faisant entrer en dialogue avec les récentes évolutions observées sur la scène nord-américaine (5). [less ▲]

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.
