The impact of solidarity economy on poverty: The case of public centres of solidarity economy in Bahia, Brazil

Laura Dubois

World Development Perspectives, 2021, vol. 23, issue C

Abstract: Poverty reduction lies at the heart of development discourse and practice. Despite significant achievements in the early 2000s, poverty remains a pervasive problem in Brazil. This has prompted the emergence of alternative development strategies such as solidarity economy, a movement which provides economic opportunities for workers in collective production and empowers them through participation.
