A New Centre Blog!

We have a new blog! Contemplating Co-ops will tackle the most current issues facing co-operatives and credit unions around the world.

Co-ops and credit unions play a critical role in the economy and society, meeting needs that are often not satisfied by other organizations. Contemplating Co-ops will look at everything from how co-ops and credit unions allocate internal control and authority, to the challenges they face in dealing with issues such as food security and environmental protection, to the ways in which they may or may not work in new settings such as Indigenous communities. Understanding the role co-ops are playing sheds light on how people around the world are using an organization that they own and control to alter, in some way, the world in which they live.

Contemplating Co-ops will be authored by faculty and staff at the Centre and by our colleagues from around the world. Material will be drawn from the research we're doing and observations we make on what's happening in the sector. We want to hear what you think, so don’t hesitate to comment on the posts or send us notes.
