Cooperative ways of working : towards a Mediterranean research project Collection home page Statistics

Cooperative enterprises are guided by both economic and social principles. Like other firms, they operate in a free market economy and, in order to compete successfully they have to meet the normal commercial criteria of productive efficiency and financial viability. According to Maltese law, a cooperative is an enterprise whose primary aim is that of promoting the 'economic interests' of its members in accordance with certain 'cooperative principles'. These principles are celebrating their 150th anniversary this year: They were originally enunciated by the Rochdale Pioneers (in 1844) and subsequently adopted, with minor amendments, by many other countries, as well as by the International Cooperative Alliance.
