Emergence of social enterprises and their place in the new organizational landscape, The
Recent dynamics in the social and economic environment have facilitated the emergence of new-hybrid-organizational forms, a phenomenon that has been frequently associated with the blurring of boundaries among the for-profit, public and nonprofit sectors.

The new organizational landscape is illustrated.
