Potencijali i prepreke razvoja socijalnih supermarketa u Srednjoj i Istočnoj Europi

Opis projekta
The ongoing economic crisis caused the rising unemployment and the increasing poverty in the European Union. On the other hand, the traditional distribution channels usually generate surpluses that can be effectively used to decrease problems of poverty. Research studies show that Social supermarkets, as a new retail, are becoming increasingly important factor in reducing poverty across Europe throughout more efficient distribution of generated surpluses of goods. Social supermarkets at their core purpose and mean of operations are substantially different compared to the traditional retail formats, and in the current scientific literature they have not been sufficiently investigated so far, especially in Central and Eastern European countries. As social supermarkets base their operation on philanthropic foundations, volunteering and donations, and already in some markets significantly affect the structure of revenues of the traditional retailers, this topic requires a multidisciplinary approach in order: (a) to clarify their current position and their impact the general socio-economic situation in the particular markets, (b) to investigate the legal framework that has been established by those countries in which social supermarkets reached a high level of development, particularly in the area of tax legislation and consumer rights legislation, (c) to assess management issues regarding work organization of volunteers or employees, and (d) to explain particular problems of the effective organization of input logistics and distribution of goods and services within social supermarkets. Therefore, the project team will include experts from the fields of retailing, retail management, management of nonprofit organizations, corporate finance, fiscal systems and social work from several scientific institutions from four Central and Eastern European countries.
