National sections

National Sections and collective members reflect in their respective countries the dual anchor of CIRIEC, namely scientific research with and for managers/practitioners serving the general and collective interest.

At national level, the members of CIRIEC are companies and organizations active in public, social and cooperative economics; enterprises and structures associated with network-economics, either socio-political networks (government agencies, public administrations and ministries, socio-professional federations, trade unions,…) or technical networks (public utilities, public or regulated enterprises,…); enterprises and organizations from the “social economy” sector (cooperatives, mutuals, associations and foundations); experts and individual researchers from universities and research centers; and individuals with varied backgrounds interested in the fields of activity of CIRIEC.
In several countries, membership processes are under way, either as national sections (Costa Rica, Tunisia) or as collective members (in Chile and Ecuador).

CIRIEC currently has 14 National sections and 8 collective members et 1 observer member.
