Summary
Cooperatives contribute significantly to economic and social development in virtually all countries of the world. They not only create and maintain employment, cooperatives also pave the way for broader social and economic advancement. Their resilience to crises and their characteristics as principles-based enterprises are increasingly drawing the attention of governments, policy-makers and citizens around the world. This updated edition of Guidelines addresses the rationale for cooperative law. It provides a review of issues that will help lawmakers and other cooperative stakeholders explain and defend the need for cooperative legislation. Produced to incorporate new trends in the development of cooperative law, this edition discusses the harmonization of law; the emergence of international regulations; new regional cooperative legislation; and innovation in the cooperative form of enterprise itself. Guidelines for Cooperative Legislation is both an accessible and valuable reference to lawmakers, cooperative representatives and researchers interested in cooperative law. These guidelines are a contribution to fulfilling the aims of the United Nations International Year of Cooperatives celebrated in 2012
