The Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) as a scientific subject has a rapid international development in recent years both due to the search for new models of development and socio-economic organization in the context of the prolonged crisis and due to the enormous growth of the field itself. On the level of empirical research during the last decade, Greece has been the focus of international research interest due to the significant development of SSE during the crisis.
The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the subject of SSE. The course is structured in three main sections. The first section refers to examples from the domestic experience of some of the key forms of SSE, such as cooperatives, alternative exchange networks, community supported argiculture and peer to peer production. In the second section there is a systematic discussion aimed at clarifying the content and the theoretical foundations of the concept of SSE in relation to concepts having similar content. The third section presents classic and contemporary approaches to KALO.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:
● Understand the diverse forms and types of business involved in the SSE framework.
● Understand the diverse forms and types of work that are rewarded for good work.
● Understand the diverse forms and types of transactions within the GOOD.
• Know the content, history and theoretical foundations of the concept of SSE and recognize its difference from similar concepts.
• Understand the content of concepts that often accompany the study of SSE.
• Know the beginnings of the theoretical debate on SSE and understand the importance of older approaches in today’s debate.
• Know the basic theoretical and epistemological assumptions and central arguments of SSE’s modern approaches.
