The workshop organised by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) in partnership with the ILO and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung held in Geneva 11-12 May 2015 brought together an interdisciplinary group of experts in the fields of alternative finance, economic sociology and the anthropology of money to look at the transformative potential of social and solidarity finance from a South-South and triangular cooperation perspective at a time when financing for development and the post-2015 sustainable development agenda are high on the UN’s list of priorities.

A meeting of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy was also held in conjunction with the workshop, to ensure the policy impact of event. The findings of the workshop will feed into a Task Force position paper to be disseminated to stakeholders of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa (13-16 July 2015).
