This important new book explores the potential of the social economy as a site of urban struggle, political mobilization and community organization. It provides a critical account of the social economy and its place in urban and state restructuring by drawing on a range of neighbourhood, national and global cases. Evaluating community enterprises, social finance and solidarity markets, it seeks to map the possibilities, contradictions and tactics in creating alternative forms of urban regeneration and local development.
