Analysis of Public Policies on Solidarity Economy in Colombia


The globalization has managed to forge the integration in many scenarios, starting from the economic scopes until arriving at others as the arts, the education and the health, to point out some. This reality has resulted in changes that have not always unfolded as the communities or stakeholders would have first estimated. Thus, the solidarity economy that had its genesis in the need to contribute to the formation and recovery of the social fabric has been impacted by the phenomenon in question and the generation of public policies, which are fundamental for the social and economic development purposes of any territory. Objective: To analyse the role of current public policies and their influence on the solidarity economy in the department of Córdoba between 2004 and 2017. Methodology: For the proposed study, a mixed methodology was proposed that combined qualitative and quantitative approaches and tools, since in this way it was possible to approach the subject from the different aspects of it. Findings: The data compiled make it possible to assert that, although there is a greater dynamic and commitment since the public exercise; these efforts have still been insufficient. Application: In order to make the solidarity economy more dynamic in the department, public policies must be better structured and the periodic monitoring and evaluation needed to achieve the expected goals must be encouraged.
