An article under the title “The potential role of social enterprises in rural areas” written by Luca Koltai (senior consultant of the Division for Public Policy and Impact Assessment) was published in the Hungarian Social Policy Review (Szociálpolitikai Szemle).

The article describes the role of social enterprises and their opportunities in rural areas as well as in the local economy and in the organization of the local community. It also describes the experience of social enterprises with financial assistance programmes as well as their relationship with public employment and examines which difficulties these organizations face.

The article relies on the experiences of two previous research papers prepared by HÉTFA in 2018.
