An International Perspective
Edited By CIRIEC, Marie J. Bouchard and Damien Rousselière
This book fills a gap in the literature about the social economy. It seeks to explain why it is important to have statistics on it, to understand how they are produced, and to project how the social economy might be better understood in the future. The book offers researchers and decision-makers an overview of the current state of knowledge on these topics.

It is the authors who engage in a reflective questioning on the data and their construction who are more likely to receive criticism, doubt and suspicion from readers. By contrast, those who favor a non-reflective use of the data, maintaining the reader permanently at a very realistic level, protect themselves in advance from all criticism or ordinary doubt.
