AbstractHong Kong is facing a multifaceted problem brought about by an ageing population. The conversation on how a new social sector that is neither public nor private can play a role to solve this global issue has taken on new momentum in these two decades. However, existing government policies and funding schemes in support of SEs are perceived as ineffective by media in the recent decade. This project focuses on the dynamics of social enterprise (SE) in addressing the needs of the elderly in Hong Kong. The objective of this research is to study why SEs are formed and how the Hong Kong government has been fostering SEs to achieve the goal in improving elderly’s livelihood. Through studying the governance modes and types and policy instruments in place to cultivate SEs, this project puts on the importance of tripartite collaboration and how policy instruments play as a fulcrum of good governance in delivering desirable policy outcomes for the elderly in Hong Kong.
