Abstract

The collected volume edited by Peter Utting with chapters by Suzanne Bergeron, Stephen Healy, Carina Millstone, Bénédicte Fonteneau, Georgina Gómez, Marguerite Mendell, Paul Nelson, John-Justin McMurtry, Cecilia Rossel, Abhijit Ghosh, Ananya Mukherjee-Reed, JeanLouis Laville, Justine Nannyonjo, Bina Agarwal, Béatrice Alain, Cristina Grasseni, Francesca Forno, Silvana Signori, Darryl Reed, Roldan Muradian, José Luis Coraggio and Milford Bateman critically analyses the vast and diversified field of action of the social and solidarity economy, paying particular attention to its determinants and challenges. Unlike other contributions, the book has the merit of adopting a non-ideological approach intended to evidence the tensions and contradictions inherent in the growth and expansion of the social and solidarity economy. It is consequently essential reading for those interested in understanding the bottom-up dynamics driven by groups of citizens concerned to promote a more inclusive and democratic economy. The book is therefore addressed to a plurality of readers, including practitioners in the field of international cooperation, researchers, activists, and policymakers.
