Social economy organisations have generally been ignored by democratic theorists. Similarly writers on the social
economy have failed to engage with normative theories of democracy. This paper argues that Paul Hirst’s theory of associative democracy can be considered a democratic theory of and for the social economy: self-governing associations become the primary form of social organisation. The paper considers the regulatory framework that would be needed to promote associative democratic reform, in particular the problems of regulating internal democratic practice. Drawing on the case of England, we explore the extent to which actually-existing legal and fiscal frameworks could be utilised to enable such a transition.
