The Role of Cooperative Enterprises in the European Economy
The paper reveals a relevant dimension of social economy in Europe: cooperatives. Like many other types of enterprise, cooperatives face the challenge of finding the most efficient means to distribute insufficient resources. But contrasting most other enterprises, cooperatives also need to seek a sustainable stability between members’ needs and economic challenges. The paper discusses issues related with the contributions of cooperative enterprises to poverty reduction, employment generation and social integration, the contributions of cooperative to the EU 2020 strategy and the impact of economic crisis on the cooperative enterprises.
