Abstract

The social and solidarity economy (SSE) refers to organizations and enterprises that are based on principles of solidarity and participation and that produce goods and services while pursuing both economic and social aims. The paradox of the SSE is that it refers to familiar realities although the concept is not always very well known or commonly understood. The overall objective of this reader is to build a common understanding of the SSE - although there are, of course, multiple ways to describe it. The aim of the first chapter is to build a common understanding of the concept of the SSE. The second chapter deals with governance and management issues of social and solidarity economy enterprises and organizations (SSEOs). Chapter 3 presents some public policies created to support the development of the SSE at the international, national and local levels enterprises. Chapter 4 addresses networking and partnerships, which are key factors in building a strong, recognized and visible SSE. Chapter 5 examines how SSEOs are contributing to one of these international development frameworks, i.e. the ILO Decent Work Agenda.
