Solidarity economy and feminism
Seminar | Monday, April 10th
FMSH Paris (Maison des Sciences de l’Homme de Paris) in partnership with RIPESS Eu and Centro de estudos sociais, launches a webinar as an opportunity to build a dedicated space to nurture international conversation and to strengthen the relations among the initiatives and the people active in solidarity economy as a global movement.
Where are the minority women in the European Solidarity Economy agenda? Contributions from Feminist Economics, Intersectional theories and Black Economic Thought to the field of Solidarity Economy.
Given that solidarity economy is particularly concerned with fostering economic democracy, by questioning the social asymetries that might hinder its achievement and/or by reinforcing the communities’ resilience, this seminar highlights the relevance of intersectional approaches to economic issues, particularly the solidarity economy debate within European countries. This intersectional approach might not only deepen the debate on the (dis/re) connection between the solidarity economy agenda and social inequalities in Europe but also to the design of more fine-tuned public policies and advocacy towards social and environmental justice.
Main speakers : Luciane dos Santos (Researcher at Centro de Estudos Sociais (CES), University of Coimbra) ; Swati Banerjee (Associate Professor, Centre for Livelihoods and Social Innovation, School of Social Work, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai)
Next sessions : 12th of July - 13th of September
