This paper derives the PRAMS analytical framework from the welfare regime perspective to examine differences in the way that social enterprises develop in different societies. We conducted a comparative analysis of five societies, namely the UK, the US, Italy, Sweden, and Taiwan. We argue that the welfare regime in a society shapes the trajectory of the development of that society's social enterprises, with respect to the type of organizational agent that predominates, the overall size of the sector, and the scope of its operating activities. We conclude that a welfare regime cluster corresponds to a social enterprise cluster. A major policy implication of this is that cross-country policy learning in social enterprise development is largely limited by differences in welfare provision institutions.
