The topic will be 'Managing Consumer Co-operatives - A Historical Perspective' by Nikola Balnave (Macquarie University) and Greg Patmore (The University of Sydney).

The paper is a preliminary paper that will be presented and further developed at the Global History Consumer Co-operative Project conference in Stockholm in May.
