At this Seminar, held in conjunction with the UN Library Geneva, invited experts will unpack the concept of social inclusion in the United Nations and in academic discourse.

Opportunities and Challenges of Statistics on Social and Solidarity Economy: Expert Workshop

The demand for statistics on SSE is increasing thanks to growing recognition of the sector's benefits, but robust statistical information about SSE remains hard to come by, and globally agreed statistical methods, indicators and systematic data collection have yet to be established. This workshop takes stock of knowledge on the production of statistics on SSE, in order to identify the limitations and benefits of various methodologies and indicators for SSE and suggest ways to move forward. It is part of the research project Opportunities and Challenges of Statistics on Social and Solidarity Economy, carried out for the SSE Knowledge Hub for the SDGs, an initiative of the UN Inter-Agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE), and implemented by UNRISD.
