Anna Domaradzka, Benjamin Gidron

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This concluding chapter discusses the nature of the new social and impact economy and asks whether it is a continuation of the old social economy or it possesses features that are unrelated to its predecessor. It focuses on the 2008 crisis that started its initiation and brought about new ideas on how to shape the future economy. It continues to the current COVID-19 pandemic, especially to its upcoming economic consequences, which will likely call for measures that align with social and impact economy principles. Along this vein, it summarizes the response of the contributing authors regarding the reactions of the social and impact economy actors in the respective countries to the pandemic. It ends by posing the question regarding the future participation of the social and impact economy actors in shaping the future economic order.
