Research title: From Arts to Social Innovation: exploring how community and social enterprises contribute to economic development

Research Summary

My research looks at arts-based social enterprises across Scotland and how they contribute to the areas they are based in. I am particularly interested in how arts based social enterprises contribute to economic development, and the relationship government policy has within this. 

My research sits within the Entrepreneurship, Development and Political Economy research cluster.  

I am also currently working on the Authentic Leadership Pedagogy project which focuses on connecting business practice of leadership into higher education settings.
