Solidarity Economy in Mexico: Towards an alternative based on intercooperation and mutual support

Mildred Daniela Berrelleza-Rendon, Cristina de la Cruz-Ayuso


This article analyses the situation of solidarity economy in Mexico. The work is structured in five sections in which the reality of these economic alternatives, which aspire to become effective tools to fight against poverty and exclusion, is examined from different analytical axes that provide knowledge about their different conceptual and practical approaches; on the legal framework that protects it in Mexico and the public resources assigned for its promotion, as well as the potential and limitations that the network of solidarity economy has in Mexico. This work concludes with a brief conclusion of the challenges it faces.
