Abstract
Today we are facing a big range of possibilities that may contribute to a sustainable development.

The civil society organizations and the aid society have long been the most important players, but since the last decades we can identify a new operator in the field of sustainable development, the social entrepreneur.
Social entrepreneurship is often said to be a hybrid between business and activism. I would like to say that it’s a wide spectrum of actors but the essence is that a social entrepreneur is in an innovative way contributing to a sustainable development, without relying on a donor’s capital.
In this thesis my purpose is to scrutinize how this new actor, the social entrepreneur, is acting to contribute to a sustainable development and how this actor comprehend human rights impact of the work towards a sustainable development. (Less)
