The Yunus Centre focuses on health and wellbeing, with the aim of transforming the lives of vulnerable communities through pioneering research in microfinance, social business and health economics.

Researchers at the centre have been evaluating the health and well-being impacts of community-led social enterprises for eight years, with projects (funded mainly by EU research programmes) covering multiple topics:

  • Enabling social entrepreneurship for innovative and inclusive societies
  • Transnational solidarity at times of crisis
  • Social enterprises on the move
  • Social innovation through knowledge exchange
  • Skills and integration of migrants, refugees and asylum applicants in European labour markets
  • Working conditions in the GIG economy sectors
  • Developing the next generation of social enterprise scholars
