While her doctoral thesis engaged with the ways in which promoters develop, advertise and embellish the concept in Euro-America, her current project examines how the concept is realized, made manifest and contested in the Global South. What happens when the heroic vision of social entrepreneurship meets the everyday struggles of very poor people? How do activists "teach" business skills and motivate clients to alter their economic behavior? What do participants learn and to what extent do their learnings meet previously held expectations or shape future action? Stefanie Mauksch explores these questions through an investigation of social enterprise projects in Kathmandu (Nepal) and Khartoum (Sudan).
