Building The Social Economy: Case Studies from Cuba, Mexico and Quebec

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The workshop will present different international case studies about the development of public policies for the social economy (SE). The objective of the workshop is to inspire new practices and strategies elsewhere, as well as underscore the usefulness of relaying information and connecting practitioners around best practices. The workshop will highlight different policies that support the development of the SE in Mexico and in Quebec, how they came about and their impact, then present the case of Cuba and what policies stakeholders of the SE there are working to adapt to their local context.
