Overview

Cooperatives are unusual organizational structures, as they are highly democratic in nature (one member + one vote) and their successful operation involves delivery of environmental, business and social outcomes. Internationally, cooperatives are the 'normal' form of social enterprise, however in the Australian context they are considerably under researched legal form. In order to operate successful, cooperatives need to take into consideration the needs of multiple stakeholders, not the least their members and communities which they function to benefit. This thesis will examine the multiple accountabilities of cooperatives in Australia.
