The conference entitled “The solidarity economy in Turkey: the first encounters between actors and researchers” acknowledge that solidarity economy is rooted and based on the practices of the actors who conceive it, the theory being built in dialogue with them.
Therefore, through this event, we seek to give a voice to actors in various workshops and to foster a real dialogue with academics around the issues they identify, to better understand the plural forms of economic alternatives in Turkey. It is through these workshops and this method to participate in the production of common knowledge around solidarity alternatives. It is an invitation to establish bridges, mutual knowledge, links which could lead to various projects and future meetings. It should make it possible to deepen a shared knowledge of practices and reflections around the solidarity economy in Turkey, and to enter into dialogue with other players and researchers in the European area. The conference is open to anyone interested in the challenges of developing the solidarity economy.
