Abstract
In the light of economic and financial crises, social innovations have been looked at and analysed from new point of views.

The analysis of these organizations has shown that uncertainties in concepts like social innovation and institutional change are embedded in the social needs and positions of actors.

In the light of economic and financial crises, social innovations have been looked at and analysed from new point of views. This thesis has run an analysis of two social entrepreneurial organizations (SEOs) to shed light on how actors from vulnerable communities, like Rosengård and Persborg from the city of Malmö perceive complexities embedded in social innovations and institutional change. The analysis of these organizations has shown that uncertainties in concepts like social innovation and institutional change are embedded in the social needs and positions of actors. By analysing Yalla Trappan and Malmö Connectors, which are organizations that serve some social and economic needs within vulnerable communities in innovative ways, this thesis came to the learning that social innovations are dynamic processes that are embedded in a bigger and indeed an ambiguous whole where the relationship between institutional change and actors of change is an ever changing one. Yet, social innovations can be systematically analysed and modelled for the purpose of peeling off ambiguities embedded in the social and economic positions of actors of change. (Less)
