      Mara van Twuijver

      University College Cork, Cork University Business School, Department of Food, Business and Development

      Research interests:

      For her PhD-research, Mara is currently investigating how the hybrid nature of rural social enterprises is of influence on their organisational strategy. Rural-based social enterprises are more and more seen as potential partners in fostering development in rural areas, both by politicians and academics. However, we know very little of the way in which rural social enterprises are able to address the needs of rural areas and how they are able to continue to do this over time. Because of their hybrid nature, these organisations need to balance among others social and economic goals, as well as the perceptions and expectations of many different stakeholders. Through a qualitative case study methodology, Mara investigates how, over time, rural social enterprises deal with this hybridity in their organisational strategy.

      Keywords Research interests:
      Social enterprises, social entrepreneurship, social innovation, hybrid organisations, rural development, community development, qualitative research methods, critical realism.

       

      Areas of collaboration:

      Mara is an early stage researcher in the EU Horizon-2020 funded MSCA-ITN ‘RurAction’ (www.ruraction.eu). Mara is also a member of the EMES-network.
