International Summit of Cooperatives 2016: Call for Papers

In line with the Summit's overarching theme, this scientific conference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners around the impacts of cooperatives.

The diversity and multidisciplinarity of the participants and contributors enhances the conversation. Accordingly, the 2016 edition will include communications from a variety of horizons: practitioners and actors, stakeholders from different domains (co-operative companies, territorial communities, financers, etc.), and researchers specializing in different fields (management, economy, sociology, political science, operational research, geography, etc.).

Contribute to scientific and professional sessions, symposia, round tables, doctoral seminars, presentations, and poster sessions on the topic “Co-operatives and Mutuals: Impacts and Power to Act.”

The best communications will be published on the International Summit of Cooperatives website in a scientific collection and authors will be invited to present the paper. The best activities will be chosen for the scientific program.

You are invited to send papers (articles) or to propose scientific activities (e.g.: scientific conference, posters, round tables, etc.). Proposals may be submitted in French, English or Spanish. Simultaneous translation will be available at the event in French, English and Spanish.
