Rafael Chaves of TSI partner institution Research Institute on Social Economy and Entrepreneurship (IUDESCOOP) at the University of Valencia will promote TSIs work the 5th CIRIEC International Research Conference on the Social Economy. Conference themes are organised before the backdrop of globalization and the finacial structures that have produced uneven and arguably illusory gains, given evidence of the increasingly precarious position of labor and livelihoods while contributed to the widespread distribution of environmental harm and ecological degradation.

Rafael is President of CIRIEC International Scientific Commission “Social and Cooperative Economy”
