Student Workshop on the Social Economy

In Association with the 1st International CIRIEC Research Conference on the Social Economy

Victoria, British Columbia – A pre-conference student Workshop on the Social Economy (SE) is scheduled to take place at the University of Victoria on Monday, October 22, 2007. This Workshop is open to any student (graduate or undergraduate) interested in the Social Economy. The Workshop will be a fun, interactive, student-led event, based around several “themed” presentations designed to enhance students’ research skills and expose them to methodologies for conducting Social Economy-based research. It will also facilitate information-sharing, networking and community-building through the use of breakout sessions and informal round-table dialogue and discussion. The Workshop offers participants a chance to get to know other students working in the SE field and to connect to one another by joining the Social Economy Student Network. [ ]

The Workshop builds upon the networks and linkages which were established among the participants of the Student Community-Based Research Workshop held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on May 28, 2007.

The Workshop is free to those students who are registered for the CIRIEC conference and a small $25 fee will be administered to non-registered students to help cover costs associated with holding the Workshop. Food and refreshments for the day will be served to participants at no cost.
