The OECD has significantly contributed to the conceptual knowledge and practical understanding of the social economy since its’ pioneering work on the plural economy in the 1990’s. The OECD continues to expand its knowledge base while raising awareness of the contribution of social economy organisations to an inclusive and sustainable growth at the local, regional and national levels in OECD member countries and beyond.
