Abstract

E‐commerce plays an important role in today’s business environment, and that role will continue to grow each year. eMarketer predicts that by “2004, world wide e‐commerce revenues are expected to total USD 2.7 trillion”. E‐commerce continues to grow in the United States. “The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce announced today that the estimate of U.S. retail e‐commerce sales for the first quarter of 2004, not adjusted for seasonal, holiday, and trading‐day differences, was $15.5 billion, an increase of 28.1 per cent (±2.9 per cent) from the first quarter of 2003.” “According to a new study by RoperASW and AOL Time Warner, Europeans spent on average EUR430 on line between August and October 2002.” This compares with an average spend of EUR543 per head in the US over the same period.

Abstract

Purpose

To study the legal underpinnings of the definition of social enterprise in the context of the problems with the corporate legal structures available in the UK in the late twentieth century and the reforms of the early twenty first century to assess whether further reforms are needed to facilitate the growth of the social enterprise movement.

Design/methodology/approach

A definition of social enterprise is proposed and examined in light of the problems associated with twentieth century company law and the efforts to reform and develop it in the period, 2000‐2006.

Findings

Three major developments may be seen to have important consequences for the continuing reform and development of company law: the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 2002 (Office of Public Sector Information 2002a) (private members bill); the Co‐operatives and Community Benefit Societies Act 2003 (Office of Public Sector Information 2003) (private members bill); the PIU Report “Private Action, Public Benefit” (Cabinet Office/Strategy Unit 2002) and the resulting Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Business) Act 2004 (Office of Public Sector Information 2004); and the Charities Act 2006 (Office of Public Sector Information 2006). Refers also to other developments impacting on company law, notably the European Co‐operative Society’s European Co‐operative Society Statute (SCE) Regulation and Directive.

Originality/value

Provides a useful guide to UK legal trends likely to impact on social enterprises.

Abstract

What are the communication experiences associated with educating active citizens and activating youth to address social problems? How does this happen in the context of Bulgaria defining its national as well as European and global identity? This study conducted during the academic year 2003‐2004 specifically looks at how Bulgarian English language teachers are using democratic methods and projects to meet the goals of improved English language and citizenship skills to prepare their students to be active citizens of Bulgaria and future citizens of the European Union. Findings are still preliminary, and this paper will focus on background, methods, highlights and raw data.

Abstract

This article makes the case for a ‘racism reduction’ agenda that aims to promote action to reduce racism. It argues for placing this mission and its agenda at the core of agency and community practice. It provides information on the wider national and European context for racism and racist violence, and offers suggestions for practice that can help prevent racial violence and promote race equality. The article draws on recent research carried out for Safer Leeds (Law, 2007).
