The EMES network and the centre Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Roskilde University (RUC), Denmark are co-organising the 3rd EMES-Polanyi International Seminar.


The Seminar will take place from 16th and 17th of April 2018. The title "Welfare societies in transition – Polanyi revisited through the lens of welfare state, social democracy and solidarity economy" draws attention to the focus of contributions sought: the role of civil society and citizen-driven initiatives in times of retreating mass oriented solidarity through public redistribution, new or desirable relationships between collective action and public institutions to address social inequalities, and the promotion of a new socio-economic paradigms that foster freedom and achieve the inclusion of diverse groups within the framework of the nation state.

The Seminar is structured around five thematic axes:

  1. Promoting institutional-reciprocal welfare linked to Polanyian terms of reciprocity and redistribution;
  2. Solidarity economy and commons managing public goods;
  3. Dialogue between public policy and civil society;
  4. People-centered social innovation and participatory governance; and
  5. Action research as a tool to facilitate and scale social mobilization.
