Is integration business a strategy combining the economic and social dimensions of sustainable development?[Research paper] by Nathalie Rusé


The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2008/2009.

The purpose of this dissertation is to analyse a new business model, which places social preoccupations at its heart without neglecting economic performance: social business. Does this alternative business model really create social and economic value? The relevance of this new concept will be analysed in the context of France's social reintegration sector. Can profit and social reinsertion really be reconciled as is claimed by theoreticians from both the academic and the business worlds, who adhere to the concept of the “triple bottom line”? If so, what are the conditions necessary to achieving this double economic and social objective?
