Issues: Volume 8, Issue 2
Authors: Alessandra Piccoli, Jacopo Sforzi

The second edition of the international conference dedicated to the social and solidarity economy (SSE) and the commons was organised by the Centre for International Studies (CEI-IUL), with the support of the Department of Political Economy at ISCTE-IUL, the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (cE3c) in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon and
the Solidarity Economy Incubator at the Federal University of Alagoas (UFAL) in Brazil. The aim of the conference was to promote dialogue and exchanges of knowledge and experience among academics, practitioners and civil society activists about new governance models of the commons and the necessity to find alternative or complementary socio-economic development paradigms based on new spaces for collective action to re-establish social ties and build new life and work opportunities.
