Realizing the Solidarity Economy
Monday, April 22nd, 2024

Here we explore the theory and practice of building a democratic economy, with a focus on the solidarity economy—an economy that is rooted in solidarity, cooperation, and mutualism; equity in all dimensions (e.g., race, ethnicity, nationality, class, and gender); participatory democracy; sustainability; and pluralism. 

In all of this, the need for vision and imagination is clear. This includes being aware of our history and building on notions of mutualism and on Indigenous values and traditions. It means being open to new possibilities for economic justice provided in the present, such as the potential future widespread adoption of platform cooperatives or the development of new forms of worker organization. Explore the articles in this section to learn more about the theory and practice of economic democracy and solidarity economics.
