  • ICA Cooperative Research Conference with the theme Deepening Our Cooperative Identity will be organized on 28 – 30 November 2021.
  • The 3rd International Forum on Cooperative Law with the theme Identity of Cooperatives and the Harmonization of Cooperatives LawsMatch or Mismatch? will be organized by Ius Cooperativum Association with support from the ICA through its Committee on Cooperative Law, on 29 and 30 November 2021.

These two research events will be precursors for debates on key-themes and sub-themes of the 33rd World Cooperative Congress, building content for discussions based on scientific and analytical contributions. Here you will find more information on where and how to submit your abstracts and panel proposals.

The new deadline for submission of abstracts and panel proposals is 15 April 2021. We thank researchers who had submitted their abstracts for the two pre-congress events, in 2020, with whom we will continue to work through 2021.
