Beyond Profit Special Issue: Property Rights, Identity and Dignity

Beyond Profit was a social enterprise magazine launched by Intellecap in 2009 to present the stories, people and ideas behind innovative social enterprises. It brought together first-hand insights and expert commentary across Intellecap’s Focus Sectors and related themes.

This special issue of Beyond Profit looks into “property rights” – an important, but often overlooked, aspect of poverty alleviation. Tackling the problem of how to improve access to and implementation of property rights poses real challenges to policy-makers and development practitioners because of the complexity of the issue and its controversial nature.
