Join us for the book launch of Social Service, Private Gain: The Political Economy of Social Impact Bonds, written by Jesse Hajer and John Loxley. This book examines the evolution of Social Impact Bonds, how they work, their theoretical motivation, and their global proliferation. The book critically assesses the potential of SIBs to constructively contribute to solving the multifaceted social challenges emerging from a context of entrenched and growing inequality.
