Status: This talk has been cancelled
Cancelled due to strike action.
Social Impact Bonds combine private investment, not for profit service delivery and public sector commissioning in an innovative way that some believe represents one of the most significant reforms in social provision on a global level. These ‘outcome based’ contracts have been seen as one interpretation of the recent turn to social investment in social policy, and have been the subject of considerable hype. This seminar will discuss these claims in the context of a study of three social impact bonds in the UK.
