Cooperatives and Peace: Strengthening Democracy, Participation and Trust – A Case Study Approach

This thematic research, produced by Cooperatives Europe, demonstrates what cooperatives around the globe are doing in favour of peacebuilding and conflict resolution, in particular how they can be a tool for change. This research showcases twenty case studies from more than fourteen countries, covering different types and stages of conflicts.

Produced in the framework of the ICA-EU Partnership (#coops4dev), the research was supported by the Cooperatives Europe Development Platform (CEDP) and co-authored by the Co-operative College, Kooperationen and Coopermondo, with input from all CEDP members.
