Solidarity-based choices in the market-place : a vital contribution to social cohesion = Choix solidaires dans le marché : un apport vital à la cohésion sociale

This volume, which argues in favour of pursuing a public-private dialogue on citizens' commitment in economic activities in order to enhance social cohesion in Europe, supplements the analyses to be found in Trends No. 12. It considers the impact of citizenship-based economic initiatives on the restoration of the market's social and ethical dimension. Their importance is also reflected in the many legislative measures adopted by European states in this field and in public support for the development of ethical and socially responsible financing and consumption (including fair trade). -- Council of Europe
