The call for papers has now closed and we will announce the conference programme soon.

We invite submissions of proposals for presentations, papers, panels and practical activities that focus on inter-cooperation between co-operators and co-operatives. Proposals can be oriented towards generating debates and engaging members, facilitating experiential learning activities or reporting the findings of research studies.

We particularly welcome contributions by practitioners who wish to share developments within their co-operative enterprise and/or network on:

  • the emergence of new thinking
  • how new thinking has been applied to accounting, management, marketing or governance in co-operatives
  • how new practices have impacted on producer, worker and consumer co-operative members, and other organisations who organise as societies for mutual benefit.

Conference chairs:

Dr Francesca Gagliardi, University of Hertfordshire

Dr Elisavet Mantzari, University of Birmingham
