On November 21-23, 2018, ISCTE-IUL Center for International Studies (CEI) at the Instituto Universitário de Lisboa will organize the International Conference 'Social Solidarity Economy and the Commons: Envisioning Sustainable and Post-capitalist Futures'.
In response to the current global social and environmental crisis, various social movements are developing alternatives to the socio-economic status quo by mobilizing endogenous practices, institutions and resources and networking among grassroots initiatives. Within these movements stands out Solidarity Social Economy and the Commons.
This international and interdisciplinary conference, guided by an action research strategy, aims to respond to challenges that have arisen from recent research on forms of shared governance between the state, the market and the third sector, promoted by movements and public policies for the Social Solidarity Economy, as well as criticisms made by authors such as Martin Deleixhe, David Harvey and Massimo de Angelis to the theory developed by Elinor Ostrom on the management of common property:
