Solidarity: old concept, new meaning?

Project: University Awarded Project Funding

Effective start/end date1/11/1630/11/16


The theme of the proposed event will explore the nature of social ‘solidarity’ in Scottish society and how and in what ways grassroots organisations in Scotland can facilitate it. While the term solidarity has spawned various definitions within the social sciences, here this concept identifies practices of mutual help developed by citizens within communities.
