The United Nations has declared 2012 the International Year of Cooperatives in order to increase public awareness of cooperatives, promote consciousness of the global network of cooperatives and their efforts in community building and peace, support the formation and the growth of cooperatives and encourage governments and regulatory bodies to establish policies, laws and regulations conducive to cooperative formation and growth.

Euricse in collaboration with ICA and ACI intends to commemorate the UN International Year of Cooperatives by creating a discussion forum that can promote a better understanding of the rationale, roles, potential, and impact of cooperatives. To this end, selected contributors are asked to write in-depth analyses on relevant issues and Euricse researchers will subsequently deliver a summarizing document based on these analyses. All the materials produced - focused analyses and summarizing report - will be ultimately presented on the occasion of a final Conference that is scheduled for March 2012.
