Networking Social Finance
This publication aims at increasing the visibility of the Social Banking and Social Finance approach. It highlights the existing variety and dynamics that have been developed over the past decades.
Aimed at both the people within the Social Finance sector who can gain insights into the other initiatives, as well as those who have no clue yet about Social Finance and Social Banking, this publication portrays existing practical solutions on varying networking levels of Social Finance by using stories and accounts of the alliances, organizations and personalities who make all this happen.
It introduces the concept of banking as a vehicle for social change. It presents the advantages of networks and the existing approaches of working together. It gives insights into Social Banking and Social Finance organizations by depicting different approaches from all over the world. And it tells inspiring personal stories of individuals in Social Banking and Social Finance.
The publication has three parts. Part I Social Finance and its Networks focuses on two questions: “What is the broader perspective on the financial system as a whole?” And a more focused view of “What is the role of networks in social finance?” In Part II, Social Banking and Social Finance Initiatives, we present a wide array of social financial institutions that are members of INAISE. Various individuals write about their institutions, their history and their current goals. In Part III, People in Social Banking and Social Finance, we have invited individuals who are biographically linked to the development of social finance, to describe their work, reflect on how they moved into social finance, and to discuss current successes and challenges.
