David Bollier, Patrick Conaty, january 2016 : Democratic Money and Capital for the Commons. Strategies for Transforming Neoliberal Finance Through Commons-Based Alternatives.
One of the more complicated, mostly unresolved issues facing most commons is how to assure the independence of commons when the dominant systems of finance, banking and money are so hostile to commoning. How can commoners meet their needs without replicating (perhaps in only modestly less harmful ways) the structural problems of the dominant money system?
Social and solidarity finance (SSF)—which includes a range of forms of finance and exchange that pursue a social mission—may offer less volatile, and therefore more sustainable, alternatives. At a time when the development community is deciding how to finance the ambitious post-2015 sustainable development agenda, the potential for SSF to contribute to a more stable financial system that is conducive to sustainable development should not be ignored.
Benjamin Quiñones,ILO, 2015 : Social and Solidarity Economy in Asia: A South-South and triangular cooperation perspective
Experts pointed out the complementarity between South-South and triangular cooperation and Social and Solidarity Economy as follows:
1) South-South partnerships between SSE stakeholders are inclusive. They involve a multi-stakeholder approach central to the mainstreaming of the Decent Work Agenda.
2) South-South and triangular arrangements can reinforce the impact of Social Solidarity Economy in national contexts. They can sustain wider regional and inter-regional networks and platforms for knowledge and experience sharing.
3) Existing SSE networks between countries from the South are inspiring initiatives.
