The project was implemented by the RILSA as a part of broader project of the Association of Independent Trade Unions of the Czech Republic “Social Dialogue as a Prevention of Polarization of Society and a Tool for Working with Human Capital at the Time of Digitization and Robotization” The sub-project realised by RILSA was a follow-up to the project “Analysis of barriers to employment of persons released from prison on the labour market and possibilities of their employment; influence and promotion of social dialogue ”, which was implemented in 2018 and focused on evaluating the role and possibilities of social enterprises in employing more generally disadvantaged people in the labour market, or more specifically in employing persons registered in the Criminal Register.

The importance of legislative and institutional conditions was frequently apparent even from the previous research project, but in this project these two aspects were pursued primarily and their influence on social enterprises and on their role in employing disadvantaged people represented in this research a key perspective, because both the legislation and institutional arrangements substantially determine the overall possibilities for social enterprises and their role in employing disadvantaged people.
