Abstract
The social (and) solidarity economy (SSE) is a comprehensive concept referring to a worldwide range of existing economic practices that do not comply with the mainstream economic logic of private businesses competing in abstract markets to maximize profits for self-interested consumers, while reducing nature to a passive resource. Instead, they often involve community ownership, democratic, non-hierarchical, and consensual desicion-making, as well as mutual co-operation and embeddedness in a local social and ecological context. The line between consumer and producer may be blurred. Profits and self-interest tend to remain secondary to larger concerns such as equity and solidarity, right to a dignified livelihood and ecological integrity and limits.
