Social Solidarity Economy

Social Solidarity Economy: An Introduction to the SSE concept and practise


The concept of Social Solidarity Economy has evolved over the last century into an international movement pioneered by the Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of the Social Solidarity Economy (Red Intercontinental de Promoción de la Economía Social Solidaria, or RIPESS ). However, it is important to note that the movement is fluid and there are a myriad of organisations and proponents of SSE who diverge in their perceptions and understanding of the concept. With this in mind, this introduction to the concept of Social Solidarity Economy endeavours to provide an explanation of the common principles, values and beliefs which SSE is founded upon and how this movement differs from other economic frameworks.

Social Solidarity Economy and The Challenge of Sustainable Development


This position paper has been prepared by members and observers of the United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy. It responds to the concern that the process of crafting a post-2015 development agenda and set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has paid insufficient attention to the role of what is becoming increasingly known as the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE).
