General company law is often considered inappropriate for companies whose purposes go beyond making a profit. Many national laws provide for tailor-made rules, particularly in relation to the corporate governance of such companies, their financial order and the enforcement of their social objectives. We will compare these legal frameworks for social enterprises and socially responsible economic actors in European jurisdictions and analyse the potential for future harmonisation.
