La supervisión de las cooperativas en América Latina


  • Dante Cracogna

    () (Universidad de Buenos Aires)


The author starts with a general review of co-operative supervision, understanding as such the State activity ensuring that co-operatives comply with the laws and rules regulating them. The following chapter analyses the supervisory function as established in current co-operative law in the different Latin American countries. For this purpose the activities of the public agencies or departments concerned are grouped according to the different stages in the life of co-operatives, from constitution to winding up. Following this we survey co-operative supervision in Germany and Italy with the intention of providing guidelines from countries which have developed interesting experiences in self government. Finally, critical conclusions concerning an eventual legal reform of this area are drawn.
