Co-op Governance School for Emerging Researchers



Everyone is talking about governance today, and no wonder. Governance is key to meeting the challenges and realizing the opportunities that co-operatives face today. Join co-op practitioners in Canada and academics from Canada, the US, and Europe for four days of stimulating engagement and interaction. During the School you will:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of co-operative governance using case studies and discussions with practitioners
  • Delve into the underlying conceptual models of governance
  • Use qualitative and quantitative methods to understand governance relationships and impacts
  • Network with co-op practitioners in Canada and academics from around the world
 
The School is designed for co-op employees, postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, and graduate students interested in the governance of co-operatives and social economy organizations. Pending funding approval, you may be eligible for a stipend to offset travel costs.
