The Encyclopedia of the Social and Solidarity Economy is a comprehensive reference text that explores how the social and solidarity economy (SSE) plays a significant role in creating and protecting economic activities and relations from commercialisation and bureaucratisation, and transforming them into democratic ones. Identifying and summarising knowledge on the key issues and topics associated with the SSE, it contributes to active communication amongst diverse actors of SSE policymaking and practices.

Analysing the design, implementation and promotion of SSE organisations and enterprises at various levels, the Encyclopedia invaluably summarises knowledge about all the key aspects of SSE. Accomplished researchers depart from traditional nationalistic, Eurocentric and trans-Atlantic perspectives to shed light on neglected issues, such as development.

A collective work of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on SSE (UNTFSSE), this Encyclopedia will serve as an essential tool for scholars and students of comparative social policy, international economics, and economic sociology.

Key Features:

• 57 entries
• Clearly organised into thematic sections addressing histories, concepts and theories, actors and organisations, development, and environment and governance
• Breaks down the complex relationship between economic, social and political dimensions in an accessible way
