Publicly funded social protection and integration programmes are under intense pressure to deliver, in the face of austerity measures and large movements of people at a scale not seen since the Second World War. As governments and other stakeholders seek innovative ways to provide social protection to and foster the integration of migrants and refugees in their host societies, greater attention is being paid to the role of social and solidarity economy (SSE). With its principles and practices that aim to reintroduce values of equity and justice, humanize the economy and foster people’s participation and agency, how is SSE helping these vulnerable groups overcome social exclusion and xenophobia, and access decent work?
Speakers from international organizations, governments and civil
society explore the role of SSE in:
• promoting the human rights of migrant and refugee populations
• fostering the social inclusion and livelihoods of migrant and
• supporting the developmental aspects of the Global
Compact on Migration
