Januar 2016 um Einreichung von Short Papers für ihr sub-theme „Cooperatives as a Fortress of Participation?“. Aus dem Call:

Conceptual as well as empirical considerations regarding participative issues in cooperatives are quite contradictory. On the one hand, a number of authors (e.g. Rothschild-Whitt, 1979; Allgeier, 2011; Paranque & Willmott, 2014) place cooperatives into a prominent position among participatory forms of organizing, especially because of the principle „one member – one vote“. On the other hand, a range of concepts, such as the so called „iron law of transformation“ (Oppenheimer, 1913) or „degeneration thesis“ (for an overview, see Storey et al., 2014), express strong skepticism regarding participatory power of cooperatives because of managerial dominance over democratic efforts.

Einreichungen müssen über die Konferenzwebseite erfolgen.
