All Day



KIFESZ (Kistérségi Fejlesztő Szervezetek Országos Szövetsége Egyesület)


19-21 April 2017 in Miskolc, Hungary

The international workshop is part of a research project entitled “Social and solidarity economy in post-socialist peripheries” and granted by the Hungarian National Research Fund. The research is lead by Prof. Eva G. Fekete, Vice-Dean, Head of Department of Labor- and Social Economics, Institute of World and Regional Economics at the University of Miskolc.

The main aim of the research is to understand the weaknesses of SSE sector experienced in post socialist countries and the potential perspectives, especially:

1. to introduce the potential role of SSE in the development of peripheries with literature review and case studies,

2. to reveal the impact of state socialist legacy on the development of social and solidarity economy, to find the causes of the fact that growth is slower than in other parts of the world and to find the potential factors for dynamization with the help of country studies about five selected post-socialist countries (Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania and Slovenia),

3. to contribute to make SSE and its realised benefits more visible and to support central and local strategies with the methodological elaboration of social cost-benefit analysis of social enterprises and with the test of the method.

The aim of the workshop would be to exchange ideas, present papers and discuss the main findings of the international comparative research with the partner researchers from the four case study countries (one or two researchers from each country – Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania and Slovenia), as well as other Hungarian and international scholars interested in the topic (probably mainly from other Central and Eastern European countries, e.g Romania, Croatia, as well as representatives of international networks such as EMES and RIPESS EU). Altogether 15-16 international and 15-16 Hungarian participants are expected.
