De la Econom�a Popular a la Econom�a Social y Solidaria: el Caso de los Recicladores de Base en Santiago de Chile


  • Michela Giovannini


Las organizaciones de recicladores de base han sido analizadas en varios contextos como una salida a la informalidad y un ant�doto a la pobreza de los que trabajan en este sector. El an�lisis presentado en este art�culo est� enfocado en dos estudios de caso en el �rea metropolitana de Santiago de Chile, donde se han analizado dos comunas en las que trabajan algunas organizaciones de recicladores. El objetivo del estudio era entender las din�micas organizacionales y el potencial de estas organizaciones para pasar de una situaci�n de informalidad, asociada con la idea de la econom�a popular, a la capacidad de incorporarse como organizaciones m�s estructuradas en el contexto de la econom�a social y solidaria. Los resultados evidencian una serie de ventajas aportadas por las organizaciones de recicladores a nivel social, econ�mico, medioambiental y comunitario, y una serie de desaf�os que todav�a obstaculizan en este contexto el ulterior desarrollo de las organizaciones y el empoderamiento de sus socios.
