The United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE), is launching a call for papers to assess the contribution of Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) to inclusive and sustainable development, particularly focused on local contexts.

Organized by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD), the call for papers aims to identify and mobilize research from different regions and territories that critically examines the role of SSE as a means of implementation for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The call invites researchers and practitioners to submit proposals for papers related to two main issue areas: SSE actors and institutions’ role in implementation for the SDGs, as well as measuring SSE in its scale and impact.

The authors of the selected papers will be invited to present their work at a conference at the United Nations in Geneva, planned for April 2019. The selected submissions will also gain visibility through publication as working papers and think pieces. Published under the banner of the Task Force’s Knowledge Hub, the papers are expected to have an international impact and to contribute to UN efforts to scale up and promote SSE as means of implementation of the SDGs.
