The Society is an independent
voluntary organisation, registered as a charity, based in the UK. It welcomes,
into membership, co-operative members, employees, managers, specialist
practitioners, academics and others who share an interest in the UK and World
We seek to advance the education of members and the public on all aspects of the Co-operative Movement, co-operative forms of structure, and, in particular to commission, identify, and publish research on the Co-operative Movement, and the exchange of information and experience on Co-operative study and Research.
Since its inauguration in the 1960s, the Society has produced a regular Journal, and held a yearly Conference, bringing together academics and Co-operative practitioners to discuss issues of interest.
