The Gordian Knot of Social Economy?

November 7, 2013


In Canada, and indeed around the world, there has been a proliferation of practices that can broadly constructed as Social Economy activity. However, despite broad agreement that Social Economy activities are growing and indeed are crucial to a twenty-first century economy, neither academics nor activist agree on exactly what the boarders of this activity are. This talk will unpack the practical and theoretical importance of understanding the Social Economy through an integrative values framework and will address the intersection between social economy and social enterprise.

Dr. J.J. McMurty is the Graduate Program Director of the Social and Political Thought Program and an Associate Professor in the Business and Society Program at York University.
