The 10th edition of the International Workshop on Cooperative and Responsible Finance for Development, organized by Euricse in collaboration with Federcasse (Italian federation of cooperative banks) and with the support of EACB (European association of cooperative banks) will take place in Trento, Italy on June 20th and 21st, 2019.
They are now calling for abstracts. Through the years the participation to this scientific workshop, of many scholars and young researchers from all over the world contributed to enrich the debate on the role of cooperative finance in facing the crisis, highlighting the ability of cooperative banks in supporting and boosting local economies.
While there seems to be an increasing consensus that in most cases the cooperative banks, at least in Europe, out-performed their rivals in channeling funds to local economies, further research is needed to specify these banks’ contribution, shed light on their actual performance, and specify the institutional framework better suited to unfold their full potential.
The deadline for the submission of the abstract is on December the 30th, 2018.
Those who are intended to participate are invited to consult the call for paper at this link, where all usefull information regarding research themes, workshop methodology, important dates and scholarship can be found.
Euricse was founded by the Federazione Trentina delle Cooperative, the University of Trento, Cooperatives Europe, the Province of Trento, and the Foundation Cassa di Risparmio of Trento and Rovereto. It is devoted to the study of co-operatives and social enterprises, along various disciplinary perspectives. Euricse is a centre for analysis and debate with a high scientific profile open to collaboration with the scientific community and, in particular, young researchers. The Institute also interacts directly with cooperatives and social enterprises themselves (see www.euricse.eu).
