About the Research Project on Latin American Solidarity Economy

This study will focus on the activities categorized as those of the “solidarity economy”, as defined in the local Latin American understanding, and will analyze their characteristics, the social movements which have led to them, and their political implications in comparison with conventional development policies. Through a comparative analysis covering several cases in seven different countries, the study aims to build a theory of how the institution of a solidarity economy, in itself and in coordination with the state and market, could function to realize the “common good”, which is understood to mean the benefit for most people in the country, which in turn establishes the social conditions from them to develop their lives with dignity.
