Co-operatives Research Unit (CRU) – The Open University at Milton Keynes

CRU has three main aims: to develop social economy sector research; to support the development of co-operatives and other ethically-oriented organisations; and to work with practitioners, policy makers, and researchers to improve policy.

The CRU Publications page offers 30+ original publications discussing both co-operatives and the social economy, written between 1988-2012. Most content is UK or European-based.
