Global Consumers' Co-operative: A Historical Perspective
19th Nov 2010 -
This symposium brings together a number of international researchers examining the issue of the history of consumer co-operatives. The symposium raises a number of issues, particularly why consumer co-operatives have been more successful in some countries and regions than others. The speakers are members of a steering committee overseeing the Global Consumers' Co-operative Project, which plans to produce a major publication in 2012, the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives.
The symposium is organised by the Co-operatives Research Group, the University of Sydney Business School and we acknowledge the financial support of the University of Sydney Business School.
