The ICA 2017 conference encompasses a variety of topics illuminating creative and innovative ways of thinking about co-operatives. The conference theme is to explore the role and potential of co-operatives as inclusive, collaborative and responsible businesses that make a difference to their members’ lives. The goal is to consider these issues in theory, policy and practice. In pursuing this goal, we seek to recognise and embrace diversity from a wide range of perspectives.


A wide range of co-operative types and models in various stages of development and sophistication exist in both traditional and emerging fields. The conference seeks to develop interdisciplinary and collaborative discussions that advance our understanding of the complexity and multiplicity of co-operative approaches, and what these can offer.


Researchers, policy makers, practitioners and students of co-operatives, social enterprise and social economy from all countries and co-operative sectors are welcome to present their research and share their knowledge in order to inform policy making and support enhancements in both theory and practice, considering the real-world constraints and opportunities that co-operative organisations face.


On campus accommodation can be booked at the same time as you register. The cost is £60.00 for bed and breakfast.
