The Rights to Growth (‘R2G’) project ran between February 2018 and September 2019 and was carried out with the support of the European Commission by a partnership including Europeanlevel organisations (DIESIS, CECOP, ENSIE, ETUC and SEE) on both the workers’ and employers’ sides. A wide range of national organisations participated in the project either as partners (ACT Grupa, AVISE, CGM, COCETA, FISE, Legacoopsociali, RISE, SEUK) or were involved as members of European umbrella organisations.

The project selected a sample of 26 social enterprises from 13 EU countries and examined their practices regarding governance and participation.
