“Spotlight Interviews with Co-operators” is a series of interviews with co-operators from around the world with whom ILO officials have crossed paths during the course of their work on cooperatives and the wider social and solidarity economy (SSE). On this occasion, ILO interviewed Ms Laurence Kwark, Secretary General of the Global Social Economy Forum (GSEF), an international association of local governments and civil society networks engaged in the promotion of the SSE as a means of achieving inclusive and sustainable local development.
