The Programme on Social Innovation and Change (PSIC), headed by Professor Durreen Shahnaz, introduced a research project on “Measuring Social Impact” on October 7, 2009. The workshop included  the ecosystem of social investing — a group of investors, lawyers, government officials, academics, and representatives from rating agencies and social enterprises.

This is the first of several such workshops PSIC will arrange in the coming months. PSIC is part of the Centre on Asia and Globalisation at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore.

PSIC’s research aims to determine an effective social impact measurement methodology for sustainable Social Enterprises (SEs) in Asia, and to engage relevant players to embrace such a methodology to assist further growth in the field.
