7th CIRIEC International Research Conference on
Social and Solidarity Economy
Social and Solidarity Economy: Moving Towards a New Economic System
Bucharest, Romania, 6th – 9th June 2019
The 7th CIRIEC’s international conference will be an occasion for shared reflection on the role of Social and Solidarity Economy in facing the current challenges and a realizing a ‘transformational vision’ such as the one set by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Held for the first time in Central and Eastern Europe, in a post-communist country marked by major political, social and economic changes during the last century – Romania, and which has recently re-discovered the virtues of the social and solidarity economy, the conference aims to generate a renewed scholarly interest in these topics in the region. By bringing together the global CIRIEC network of senior and early-stage researchers interested by the whole range of the social economy components (cooperatives, mutuals, associations, foundations), it will be a unique opportunity for the West to meet East and to contribute with the results of studies to a transformational vision for a world meeting its sustainable development goals.
