CIRIEC-Portugal and CIRIEC-International (the International Centre of Research and Information on the Public, Social and Cooperative Economy) are organizing the 5th CIRIEC International Research Conference on Social Economy that will take place next July the 15th to 18th 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal.
The general theme for this 5th Research Conference is “Social economy in a globalized world”.
Social scientists play indispensable roles in identifying, analyzing and assessing the forms and consequences — both intended and unintended — of the diverse transition aspirations and experiences of the most diverse entities covered by the idea of “Social Economy” or, to bridge Europe and Latin America, “Economia Social e Solidária”
The 5th CIRIEC International Research Conference on Social Economy encourages interdisciplinary dialogue, exchange and collaboration in order to enhance the contributions and applications of scientific inquiry for understanding and improving the life conditions and experiences of the less favored people. The event will take together more that 400 researchers coming from all continents; a wide range of topics addressed by social scientists interested in Social Economy will be debated in more than twenty specialized workshops. There will also be specialized workshops addressed to young researchers doing theirs PhD and on scientific journals, their current situation and challenges.
