Western European ICSEM Symposium

Western European ICSEM Symposium

A Regional Symposium bringing together ICSEM Research Partners from Western Europe took place in Paris on May 18, 2016.

This ICSEM Symposium was divided in two parts.

The first part, entitled "Social enterprise and the social and solidarity economy", focused on the relations between social enterprise and the social economy—or the social and solidarity economy—in Latin European countries.

The second part of the meeting was devoted to "Social enterprise in Europe". Participants discussed the typology of SE models in their respective countries in relation to the “analytical triangle” presented by the Scientific Coordinators in their transversal paper, "Fundamentals for an International Typology of Social Enterprise Models" (ICSEM Working Paper No. 33).

Both parts of the meeting also focused on precise publication projects.

The meeting brought together ICSEM Research Partners from France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Finland and Italy.

Most of them also presented ICSEM-related contributions during the 2nd International Seminar EMES-Polanyi – Societies in transition. Social and solidarity economy, the commons, public action and livelihood, which took place immediately after the ICSEM Symposium.
