Towards a global socioeconomy. Solidarity Economy in times of conservatism and populism

September 7 to 11, 2020, CES | Lisbon (Picoas Plaza | Rua Viriato, lojas 117 e 118)

The present global scenario is increasingly characterised by raising levels of social and economic inequalities as well as political conservatism and populism. Representative democracy is indeed under questioning in several contexts due to its incapacity to provide efficient solutions to the needs of citizens, who are often left to their own devices in a context of growing inequalities. Against this background, several initiatives from civil society are addressing unsatisfied needs through self-managed solutions defined by cooperative relations, solidarity and reciprocity. Not only are these initiatives a response to material needs of goods and services, but also a political action for creating and practicing a counter-hegemonic economy.

Targeted audience: researchers, post-graduate students and solidarity economy activists.
