Legal Framework Analysis and the ICA-EU Partnership: Elements Supporting an Enabling Environment for Cooperative Enterprises

Legal Framework Analysis and the ICA-EU Partnership: Elements Supporting an Enabling Environment for Cooperative Enterprises

Global Office

This paper builds on existing research conducted within the ICA-EU Partnership’s Legal Framework Analysis Research, which analyses the national cooperative legal frameworks of a variety of countries worldwide. The research aims to provide harmonised information on cooperative law and its provisions, both at the national and supranational level, including a critical analysis of laws that impede or promote cooperatives, and the degree to which the legislation can be considered adequate for cooperative development. This paper outlines the exploratory findings and insights gained through this current implementation with a view to analysing, based on the current work completed, the emergent trends in a discussion on the necessary elements of a strong cooperative law.
