Internet platforms have a growing impact on our lives. The benefits of platforms are clear, but there is also a negative side such as the exploitation of labour we are seeing in gig economy apps.

Co-operatives may provide a response.

Over the next two years Professor Emmanuel Josserand and his colleague Associate Professor Sarah Kaine will be working on COOP 2.0, a research initiative which aims at finding practical strategies, modes of organisation and business models for the co-op movement to embrace disruption for the benefit of society.

The research project will be launched at the 2017 BCCM Leaders’ Summit. Professor Josserand discusses the project in this video.
