UNRISD Social and Solidarity Economy


In the last months we have been investigating on “social and solidarity finance.” The highlight was the workshop “Social and Solidarity Finance: Tensions, Opportunities and Transformative Potential” that took place on 11-12 May in Geneva, organized in partnership with the ILO and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.

We would like to inform you about:
1. The UNRISD workshop outputs
2. The GSEF conference

The rich body of speaker’s workshop contributions are now online, so please visit www.unrisd.org/ssf-workshop.

Also available is a sentence recognizing the role of social and solidarity finance that experts wish to be added to the Outcome Document of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (Addis Ababa, 13-16 July). That sentence received the support of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (TFSSE) and of the secretariat of the International Leading Group on Social and Solidarity Economy.

More outputs are forthcoming: we are preparing a short video and an event brief.

UNRISD has now become an honorary members of the Global Social Economy Forum (GSEF). The next GSEF conference will be held in Montreal, 7-9 September 2016. Stay tuned: http://www.gsef2016.org/.

With solidarity,
The SSE team
