Call for Papers: Co-operative Strength in Diversity: Voices, Governance, and Engagement

Co-operative enterprises involve diverse groups of individuals gathering and working toward a common goal. Research has shown that this diversity of voices, backgrounds, and perspectives comes with challenges, but can also be a significant strength for co-operatives. This co-operative advantage can be maximized in cases where governance structures enable inclusive and meaningful engagement from members. In this Special Issue of the Review of International Co-operation, we will reflect upon the interplay of diversity, inclusion, and social justice with co-operative enterprises in Canada and beyond. Guest editors of the Special Issue are Fiona Duguid, Sara Elder, Isobel Findlay, Judith Harris, and Derya Tarhan.
