Analysts of social policy often pay more attention to the content of social policy than to its governance. It is important to assess both. Policy communities currently link the concepts of social investment and social entrepreneurship to advocate both where and how to intervene to ensure inclusive growth.The argument of the chapter is that the explicit linking of these two notions by policy-makers at several scales of authority constitutes an emerging policy paradigm. Despite variation across countries and levels (a characteristic of any paradigm) policy communities proffer the quasi-concepts of social investment and social entrepreneurship in combination as the appropriate ways to govern financing and delivery of social investments and ensure inclusive growth.
