Euricse’s Working Paper Series consists in a collection of papers that are available for free in electronic format and can be downloaded on Euricse’s website. This allows for a broad dissemination of articles focused on the main research topics of the Institute (i.e. cooperative and social enterprises’ rationale, evolution, role, behaviour, and impact) and it stimulates debate among scholars and practitioners working in the same field. Euricse’s Working Paper Series includes articles written in English, Italian or other European languages according to various disciplinary perspectives that range from economics, law, sociology, history, and political science. The Series also comprises key studies focused on territorial/sectoral analyses. Experts of the field, as well as Ph.D. students and young researchers, are offered the opportunity to contribute to the Series.

The Working Paper Series is also posted on Euricse’s Research and Working Paper Series on Social Science Research Network (SSRN): To subscribe to this series and receive the latest research delivered to you in an email abstracting journal, please visit:
