This report integrates the main findings of SOLIDUS work package 5 “Channelling solidarity: inputs from third sector, social innovation and co-creation of public goods”,looking at third sector and social economy organisations as a transit zone for solidarity actions. Furthermore, it examines social innovations and initiatives that impact social policy by means of collaboration with public institutions with special focus on the distribution of roles and tasks between public, private and third sectors that indicates social solidarity across national and local contexts, employing a solidarity economy lens that has personal autonomy, social justice and democratisation as core drivers. The report includes 1) a short conceptual overview and methodology, 2) trends of collaboration between public administration and third sector/ social economy organisations in SOLIDUS countries before and after economic and fiscal crises as well as post-crisis policies of austerity that have increased socio-economic inequality, 3) a cross-country analysis looking at the social, economic and democratic dimensions of collaboration and 4) the key drivers and barriers for collaboration towards social solidarity in different contexts. It concludes with reflections on changing patterns of collaboration and the need to incorporate personal autonomy and solidarity economy considerations in political and public logics.
