Ecuador is a scenario in which multiple experiences related to the Popular and Solidarity Economy -PSE- are being developed; it is a living laboratory that even in complex contexts generates networks and fabrics based on reciprocity, gift and gratuity. Understanding this framework requires contributions that invite reflection and the construction of renewed public policies and institutions. This work constitutes an effort to characterize the public institutionality of the HPS sector; it is an approach that explores its practices since 2013, in particular the promotion entities. The main conclusions indicate that the public organizational structure, created from the regulatory role of the State, makes visible and supports some of the solidarity expressions, but its understanding and contribution is still limited in relation to the expectations of those who live and activate the solidarity economy in the country on a daily basis.
