Resilience of the Cooperative Model in Times of Crisis. Johnston Birchall and Lou Hammond Ketilson ; International Labour Office, Sustainable Enterprise Programme. Geneva: ILO, 2009.
The financial and ensuing economic crisis has had negative impacts on the majority of enterprises; however, co-operative enterprises around the world are showing resilience to the crisis. This report provides historical evidence and current empirical evidence that proves that the co-operative model of enterprise survives crisis, but more importantly that it is a sustainable form of enterprise able to withstand crisis, maintaining the livelihoods of the communities in which they operate. It further suggest ways in which the ILO can strengthen its activity in the promotion of co-operatives as a means to address the current economic crisis and avert future crisis.
