Call for Abstracts

The Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade of the ICA sets out a strategy plan with a number of ambitious goals to be achieved. The latter highlights -in many instances- the importance of safeguarding the cooperative identity, as well as encouraging the cooperation between cooperatives. Nevertheless, as we are approaching the end of the Co-operative Decade, how to maintain a common cooperative identity which is inclusive to both traditional and emerging cooperatives, while strengthening their network capacities in local, regional, and global level, still remains an open question. To address the aforementioned challenges, new strategic visions for cooperatives need to be explored and debated.

For this reason, following the main theme of the Paris Conference in 2021 on “Cooperatives in transition facing crisis”, the 2022 ICA CCR European Research Conference has as its main theme: Rethinking cooperatives: From local to global and from the past to the future”. We invite scholars, practitioners and policy makers to reflect critically upon the evolution of the cooperative model over the years, the challenges that it has successfully addressed and those that remain unanswered, as well as the need to both evolve and adapt to new conditions, while maintaining a common cooperative identity.

Based on the above perspective, the conference aims to address a wide range of topics of the cooperative movement’s development through time and location from different scientific fields and traditions, including – among others:

  • Agricultural cooperatives
  • Consumer cooperatives
  • Cooperative governance
  • Cooperative law and public policies
  • Cooperative management
  • Cooperative networks and territorial and rural development
  • Cooperative resilience and sustainability
  • Cooperatives and climate change
  • Cooperatives and social and solidarity economy
  • Cooperatives and sustainable development goals
  • Cooperatives and the commons
  • Emerging types of cooperatives (e.g., cooperative platforms)
  • Financial and banking cooperatives
  • History of the cooperative movement.
  • Innovation in Cooperative education
  • Assessing the cooperative impact
  • Producer Cooperatives
  • Social Cooperatives
  • Statistics on cooperatives
  • Worker cooperatives

Thematic/topics are NOT exclusive and shall be re-defined based on the received submissions.
