Author(s): 
Johnston Birchall and Lou Hammond Ketilson
Affiliated Organization: 
International Labour Organiation (ILO)
Description: 
This report will provide historical evidence and current empirical evidence that proves that the cooperative model of enterprise survives crisis, but more importantly that it is a sustainable form of enterprise able to withstand crisis, maintaining the livelihoods of the communities in which they operate. It will further suggest ways in which the ILO can strengthen its activity in the promotion of cooperatives as a means to address the current crisis and avert future crisis.
