In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent recession, co-operatives have been widely debated as a potential strategy for coping with hard times and have therefore become the focus of political debate.

This seminar, organised by UCL with the support of the Co-operative College, brings together co-operative activists, advocates and academics to explore the question of how the current interest in co-operation can be translated into practice. With approximately a billion members worldwide the co-operative movement is flourishing, but how can it continue to do so, and what role can or should governments play in this process?
