Veblen Institute, Paris, France

The Veblen Institute for Economic Reforms invites applications by researchers and student researchers who study social solidarity economy, or more widely, economic models with strong social and / or environmental purpose. This project aims to develop a strict methodology for studying economic models and social environmental impact of social enterprises.

The contributions should focus on specific actors, located in Europe or somewhere else, and explain the institutional framework (legal framework, type of governmental support, etc..) in which they work.

The analysis must clearly show the model and discuss its viability. The article should consist from 20,000 to 40,000 characters.

Only proposals with a summary will be accepted (approximately 2 pages). Please send your summary before June 31, 2011 to Mr W. Kalinowski (kalinowski@veblen-institute.org-mail),

Remuneration for the articles selected based on the summary: 600 euro by copywright (in AGESSA if the author resides in France)
