L'innovation sociale par l'économie solidaire en Bolivie : une démocratisation des conventions de production et de genre
This article proposes a conceptual framework of social innovation based on theories of institutional change and applied to Latin-American solidarity economy. Social innovation is conceived as a change in the codification of social relations that validates new principles of coordination produced by reflexive actors. This framework is used for interpreting two transformations driven by solidarity economy initiatives in the case of the city of El Alto, in Bolivia: the transformation of the relations of production and of gender relations. Thus, we evaluate the reach of two types of innovation: the affirmation of an original principle of reciprocity in the mode of production; and of a principle of equality in the access to the public and the productive spheres.
