Abstract

This paper aims firstly to outline the characteristics of social economy in Greece, focusing in particular on NGOs, and secondly to bring out their role in local development. Social economy and local development have recently emerged as a forum of dialogue and policy formulation at European and national level. In the case of Greece the lag is even bigger. In Europe on the other hand the dialogue on social economy began in the late 80s, with the official adoption of the term by the EU.

Keywords: NGO's, civil society, local governance
