The main aim of the paper was to explore whether the solidarity scene in Split had some of
the basic characteristics of the solidarity economy concept. The research encompassed the
key actors of the solidarity scene in Split, i.e. we used a purposive sample combined with
the snowball method that contained 21 persons holding managerial positions in 9 organizations
of various legal and organizational form (e.g. associations, cooperatives, political initiatives,
companies). Semi-structural interviews were conducted, and the data was analyzed in
the computer program for analyzing qualitative data (Atlas.ti), using the thematic analysis
method. The analysis revealed six themes through which the interviewees were describing
their activity in the field of solidarity and attitudes to their own social contribution and the
solidarity economy concept. These themes were: the field of work, definitions of solidarity
economy, work organization, decision making structure, public policies advocacy and social
contribution. It has been discovered that some of the unavoidable elements of the Split’s
solidarity scene correspond to some of the basic characteristics of the solidarity economy
concept and that the key actors in the field are having a hard time identifying themselves
with the concept.
