Abstract

This document presents a first short appraisal of the resolution and conclusions on Decent work and the social and solidarity economy (SSE), adopted by the International Labour Conference on June 10, 2022, in Geneva (ILO, 2022). It focusses on the definition of the SSE. The background for this review mainly draws from conceptual and legal aspects related to the SSE. A first section compares the ILO definition with similar international instruments in which a definition of the SSE is provided, outlining commonalities and difference between these definitions. A second section analyzes some elements of the ILO definition and outlines how they can be contextualized with regards to other types of definitions. A third section discusses the status of the ILO definition in an international legal context. The conclusion summarizes some of the main observations of this rapid appraisal of a new, universal, definition of the SSE.
