Placing the social economy. /

by Amin, Ash | Cameron, Angus | Hudson, Ray.

Publisher: London, U.K. Routledge 2002Description: 147 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. See references to Bromley-by-Bow Centre, p.107,111-112Summary: This book examines the role of the social economy non-profit activities designed to combat social exclusion by selling socially useful goods and services in the marketplace. The authors, geographers by profession, analyse experience of the social economy in the United Kingdom, with particular attention to four urban areas (Bristol, Tower Hamlets in London, Middlesbrough and Glasgow). > > They conclude that there is no model of best practice that can simply be transplanted, partly because local context (for example, the support of the local government authority, or the history of volunteer sector activity) is an important influence, and partly because success may be related to meeting specific local needs rather than to generating a certain number of jobs. They argue that the social economy generally remains highly dependent upon the state, serving as a different way of using and distributing resources than as a way of generating them; and that it tends not to be sustained by local community resources alone. Therefore expectations in the UK and increasingly in the EU that the social economy can be a major source of jobs, regeneration and welfare provision are unrealistic. Instead, the most effective social enterprises can open up new possibilities and networks for people who have been restricted by the limited resources of poor places . The social economy should therefore be strengthened as a sector complementary to both the state and the market, not as a substitute for either.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
