Full Economic Citizenship

Full Economic Citizenship (FEC) is one of Ashoka’s global initiatives -- striving to enable an environment where every citizen has the opportunity and the capacity to exercise his or her economic, social and cultural rights. To achieve FEC, a citizen must at a minimum have access to the essential products and services – food, water, housing, energy, health, education, financial – required to enable their activity as a consumer, producer and holder of assets.

Ashoka’s goal is for every individual to have the ability and choice to play a role in local and global economies, as consumers, producers and creators of wealth.

Through system change innovations, Ashoka’s FEC initiative seeks to end the exclusion of two-thirds of the world’s population from global markets and to catalyze government, business and CSO actions that will create the enabling conditions for everyone to exercise  Full Economic Citizenship.
