15th November 2013

This is a French-language interview on the possible convergence between commons-based peer production and the social and solidarity economy.

The occasion was the Rencontres du Mont Blanc, a gathering of social economy leaders, November 9 to 11; the interviewer was Andrea Paracchini.

“Avec Michael Bauwens, fondateur de la P2P Foundation, on essaie de creuser les ponts possibles entre économie sociale et solidaire, biens communs et peer-to-peer. Des mondes qui doivent apprendre à travailler ensemble.”
