Solidarity Economy

Published in May 2001

This proposals paper is a synopsis of the work of the Solidarity Economy Workshop.

Today both Northern and Southern countries are faced with common challenges. The hegemonic model of economic development, rooted in the globalization of capitalism, seems to be reaching its limits. Although it allows moderate rates of economic growth, it also leads to more and more alarming rates of unemployment and underemployment. We are therefore witnessing an increase in social and economic inequalities. Short-term individual solutions are not enough. For this reason, in this workshop we have considered a new development model centered on human beings, social justice and sustainability, and rooted in a shared ethical code which must materialize in a renewed socio-economic regulation.

I am anthropologist. I’ve done some research in Mexico and Quebec, notably on the work of the farmer women and the economic individual and household strategies as well as the collective action in a context of precariousness. I am especially interested in the risks of "domestication of the public space" related to the care of the resourceless by non paid women
