Keywords:social economy, social enterprise, enterprise with a social impact, wider area of the social economy
The 20-ties of the 21st century are dented by the COVID-19 period. The fall of the world economy, the frustrations of the inhabitants because of their health, and unclear state policies throughout continents require functional measures. The application of the principles of social economy enables creation of the working system of sustainable entrepreneurial activities with the help of state means, transforming small and middle-sized enterprises into a social economy. The knowledge on the system and organization structure of the social economy in the Slovak Republic enables dissemination and potential application in the international context in the current pandemic period characterized by COVID-19. The system of social economy is being defined by Slovak legal regulations and selected statistic indicators about the social economy subjects in the Slovak Republic. A part of it is also a structural classification of the organizational structure of the state administration of the social economy, classification of the kinds of social enterprises, as well as classification of the wider area of the social economy from the multiple points of view in the Slovak Republic. The research results can be used as an argument for implementing of social economy in national economies.
