In response to the current global social and environmental crisis, various social movements are developing alternatives to the socio-economic status quo by mobilizing endogenous practices, institutions and resources and networking among grassroots initiatives. Within these movements stands out Solidary Social Economy and the Commons. This international and interdisciplinary conference, guided by an action research strategy, aims to respond to challenges that have arisen from recent research on forms of shared governance between the state, the market and the third sector, promoted by movements and public policies for the Social Solidarity Economy, as well as criticisms made by some authors.
- How to promote a strong sense of community belonging while preventing the emergence of totalizing visions, ensuring pluralism and promoting democratic deepening?
- How to promote shared governance strategies between the state, the market and the third sector in which participants can autonomously construct themselves as economic and political subjects?
- How to promote organizations based on the constitution and / or management of Common Goods (Integral Cooperatives, Ecovillages, associations of users and / or producers, etc.) based on fair, inclusive and participative forms of governance, and integrated into grassroots socioeconomic dynamics?
The purpose of this event is to promote an intersectoral dialogue on this topic at the international level.
