Social entrepreneurship across different cultures

Book launch and panel talk

Collaboration between public and private sector is crucial for solving many social problems both in Norway and China.

Norway is a small and homogeneous country with a centralized social benefit system but increasing economic inequality and exclusion. China is a large and heterogeneous country with fragmented social policies, but digitalization contributes to economic inclusion. Despite the differences, there are many similarities in the approaches to social entrepreneurship and innovation.

During the launch of the book «Social enterprise in China», by Professor Benedicte Brøgger from BI Norwegian Business School, the following panel of China and innovation experts gather to discuss the similarities and differences and what we can learn from them:

  • Expert on collaborative development Robert Salomon from Oslo Met
  • Media researcher and sociologist Shishi Fang from Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences
  • Innovation expert and anthropologist Henning Kristoffersen from the University of Oslo

The panel will discuss the following topics:

  • current research findings
  • how to use digitization for inclusion
  • how to support those who do "invisible" work for the benefit of the community

新书发布 - 跨文化视角下的社会公益创业

在挪威和中国,公共和私营部门之间的合作对于解决许多社会问题至关重要。挪威是一个单一的小国,拥有集中的社会福利体系,但经济不平等和排他日益加剧。中国幅员辽阔,社会政策分散,但数字化促进了其经济的包容性。尽管存在差异,但社会创业和创新的方法有许多相似之处。
在 BI 挪威商学院的 Benedicte Brøgger 教授的《中国社会企业》一书的发布期间,有幸邀请到以下中国问题和创新议题专家,共同探讨两国异同点,以及如何从中受益:

- Robert Salomon 奥斯陆大都会大学Oslo Met 合作开发专家
- Shishi Fang 上海社会科学院 媒体及社会学 研究员
- Henning Kristoffersen 奥斯陆大学 创新与人类学家

讨论将涵盖以下主题:
- 当前的研究结果
- 如何使用数字化促进包容
- 如何支持为了社区利益而做“隐形”工作的人
