CUNHA, Eduardo Vivian da  and  LEITE, Maria Laís dos Santos. Social and community psychology and solidarity economy in Brazil: conceptual dialogues. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.2, pp.151-173. ISSN 2236-6407.

Our main objective here is to carry out a theoretical approach among the concepts of community and community development from the contributions of solidarity economy and social and community psychology. Taking as backdrop themes that motivated the emergence of these fields in the Brazilian context, we seek to understand these selected concepts by exploring possibilities of interconnections. Also, we have taken as grounding representative authors from each field at the Brazilian literature, choosing those who could contribute to this discussion. From emerged categories out of these central concepts, we have highlighted points of theorical convergence and divergence. Among the convergences, we have highlighted: I. ideas of participation and democracy; II. construction of a critical subject; III. a kind of an active citizenship. Differences, on the other hand, seems to be distinct paths for reading the same social reality, and it can be concluded that the fields are complementary in understanding this reality.

Keywords : social psychology; community psychology; solidarity economy; community development; community.
