Home / Research / Commission Social and Cooperative Economy
Some specific scientific activities of CIRIEC are developed by the International Scientific Commission “Social and Cooperative Economy”.
The Commission has about sixty members (economists, sociologists, political analysts, geographers…). Chaired since 2015 by Professor Marie J. Bouchard of the University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada), it follows recent developments and emerging research topics in the social economy at large.
One of the main tasks of the Commission is to organize every two years a great forum for exchange and reflexion in social economy research (first edition in 2007). The fifth conference took place from 15 to 18 July, 2015 in Portugal in Lisbon.
