The International Network for a Human Economy (RIEH) is made up of organizations and individuals working in four continents for the development of societies and a world where every person and every person can live in dignity. their action in the perspective of the human economy, which is at the same time a vision, a process and a set of principles of organization of societies. Organizations and individuals participate in RIEH to publicize their work, interact with other members, learn from each other's experiences, and make progress in this action.


Beyond the added value for each of them, the members of the RIEH aim to collectively promote a more humane economy, which is to say that allows everyone to meet their material, social, cultural and spiritual needs while now the natural balances. To this end, 

they identify not only the local, national or global structural behaviors and barriers that need to be addressed, but also the structural reforms and policies that have enabled or would allow progress.


What characterizes the RIEH is therefore the shared reference to the human economy and a strategy to promote it on the basis of the action of its members, which both aims to transform the situations in which they live as well as structural changes. The tools enabling the RIEH to fulfill these various missions are a website in Spanish, English and French (, a Development and Civilizations magazine publishing about ten issues a year, also in three languages, the organization of workshops and physical meetings or virtual publications, the publication of monographs and thematic studies, and advocacy campaigns.


200 people and organizations now consider themselves to be members of the RIEH and a process is underway to expand membership by paying a membership fee. The network is organized in local groups, led by continental secretariats and an international secretariat, consisting almost exclusively of volunteers.
