Abstract

Social enterprise has increasingly become a worldwide phenomenon with its ultimate aim
of solving social problems and creating sustainable social values. However, despite a con-
comitant growth in the academic interest worldwide in recent years in social enterprise,
the study of its legal and regulatory regime is limited. Understandably, social enterprise
law is a very complex subject, since it involves several complicated aspects of law, particularly those dealing with organisational forms, governance and social benefit assessment.
The main argument in this paper is that the development of social enterprise requires a favourable legal framework which satisfies the needs of social entrepreneurs through a survey of social enterprise legal contexts in ASEAN with a view to seeing where social enterprise law is available and where it is non-existent. My aim is to see the development of social enterprise legal framework in ASEAN for the purpose of further developing this type of business as a sustainable growth engine in the region.
