ICA Report on Governance in Co-operatives

CME hosted the International Co-operative Governance Symposium in September 2013. Research and work collected from the symposium, along with contributions from individuals in the international co-operative community, led to the development of a think piece. This report was then presented at the ICA Research Conference in November 2015. To access the report, please click here
