WP 02|09 Italian Co-operative Law Reform and Co-operative Principles

Research Area: Quadro giuridico
Edited by: Antonio Fici

This paper presents the principal characteristics of the new Italian co-operative law and seeks to evaluate the relationship of some of its main provisions to traditional co-operative principles. Using the Italian reforms as a starting point for debate, this paper puts forth the possibility of generalising a modified approach to co-operative regulation and principles, taking into account efficiency issues, while preserving the co-operative identity.

Paper presented at the symposium “Co-operatives, legislation and public policy” (Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Canada, 19-21 June 2009)
