Summary/Abstract: Many concepts that describe social and economic initiatives, which provide an alternative to the state and market logics are known and used internationally and in Hungary as well. Such terms include civil society, the non-profit sector, the social economy, the solidarity economy, community enterprises or social enterprises. In this study, social enterprise is understood broadly as formal and informal organizations of the social and solidarity economy. On the one hand, in our paper we outline the major turning points in the development of the institutional environment for social enterprises. On the other hand, we explore how the main actors (the state, international development organizations, the EU, networks and researchers) have shaped the formal organizations of the social and solidarity economy in Hungary, and how the stakeholders of the social and solidarity economy (social entrepreneurs, researchers, social enterprise developers, supporters) see the development of the sector.
