Work integration Social Joint-Ventures between incremental and transformative change

Abstract - EN

This paper looks at the potential for Work Integration Social Joint-Ventures to take part in implementing SDG 8 (decent work) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Based on a two-year action-research, this paper looks at the historical genesis of such partnerships thanks to a short history of the organizations studied, and at the valuation tensions within such partnerships. Facing these, it draws a few conditions to which Work Integration Social Joint-Ventures may achieve transformative sustainability.
