Greek Social Economy at the crossroads Law 4019/2011 and the institutionalization challenge
Ioannis Nasioulas ()
No 1110, CIRIEC Working Papers from CIRIEC - Université de Liège
Our main consideration here is to investigate the challenges and future prospects of the Greek Social Economy in light of the implementation of Law 4019/2011, the first ever on Social Economy and Social Entrepreneurship. Low administrative and academic visibility along with inherent fragmentation already produced major deficiencies for non-profit, social and cooperative activities in Greece. Though the current legislative act introduces a firm political interest on the field and even though some of its provisions are groundbreaking in articulating Social Economy in a viable manner substantial inconsistencies towards the European conceptual tradition and major technical oversights pose serious questions as to its eventual contribution towards the institutionalization of this dynamic and ever-evolving field in Greece.
