This free lecture promotes a discussion about governance in co-operatives from a humanistic economics perspective.
How is human dignity, democratic decision-making, and engagement of members and stakeholders safeguarded in co-operatives as people-centred organisations? What structures are deployed to ensure such engagement? What are the processes co-operatives use to avoid the pitfalls attributed to them in the corporate governance literature (property rights problems; slow decision-making processes; conflicts and heterogeneity, among others)?
