Download the call for papers

Euricse announces the organisation of the 15th Euricse International Workshop on Cooperative and Responsible Finance for Development. The workshop, organised in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Trento and Federcasse (Italian Federation of Cooperative Credit Banks), with the support of EACB (the European Association of Co-operative Banks), will be held in Trento, Italy on June 13rd and 14th, 2024 at the University of Trento (Department of Economics and Management).

The current capitalist phase is both unfair and deranged, and serious questions arise about its long-term compatibility with the ecosphere. The renewal of the economy toward a more responsible and sustainable order is therefore crucial.

This entails a new conception and a redesign of finance, where negative and positive externalities are included in the estimate of produced value, and thus favour social value and surplus.

A consequent work of reengineering cooperative and ethical finance requires choices and implementations that clearly signal: (i) what are its objectives, consequent to the evaluation of what is productive and what is predatory; (ii) which are its true stakeholders; (iii) which are its most appropriate forms of governance and what is the selection process of its leading cadres. Finally, what do European regulations and new cooperative laws mean for local banks, especially supply chain finance? Digitalisation can help to control such processes, but new players, like digital service firms outside Europe try to take over this business. What are the challenges for cooperative bank networks?

Euricse is announcing a call for papers on these research questions, which will be covered during the workshop in order to stimulate interaction, exchange of ideas and debate. The Scientific Committee will not only examine the papers by their scientific and innovative value, but it will try to achieve a balance between the workshop themes.

Abstracts are invited up to the end of December 2023 to the following email address
