Growing inequality, precarious working conditions, the climate crisis, the loss of democratic capacity and the increase in territorial violence are some of the major global challenges of our time. In many cases, women and gender minorities are at the heart of these issues, both as victims but also as promotors of alternatives to curb the risks involved. The social economy and state-owned enterprises share a social and public mission to transform the economy, its methods and its outcomes, so that it serves sustainability and improves the well-being and empowerment of people, communities and territories in the economy. What roles do women and gender minorities play in the orientation, governance and management of such organizations?
CIRIEC International journal ‘Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics’ proposes a special issue that focuses on social economy and state-owned enterprises, identifying the spaces, challenges and opportunities these organizations share from a gender perspective.
In order to provide evidence and knowledge based on both quantitative and qualitative techniques, analyses from different disciplines such as economics, sociology, law or history are necessary and welcome.
