Co-operation among co-operatives and mutuals in the Asia-Pacific region –  working together to achieve a flourishing and sustainable future

We are pleased to announce that the Newcastle Business School, at the University of Newcastle, Australia will host the International Co-operative Alliance Asia-Pacific Research Conference (ICA-CCR-AP-2019) from 12–14 December 2019. The conference will be held at our new educational precinct, NewSpace in Newcastle, Australia, a thriving regional city, located on the Pacific coast, two hours north of Sydney and a one hour drive from the Hunter Valley wine region.

This will be the first time the ICA-CCR-AP-2019 conference has been held in Australia. Newcastle has a deep history as an early home to the Australian consumer co-operative movement and is a significant centre of Australian mutuals. The Newcastle Business School currently offers Australia’s only post-graduate degree in Co-operative Management and Organisation.

The central theme for the 14th ICA CCR Asia-Pacific Research Conference is the contribution that co-operation and knowledge sharing among co-operatives and mutuals in the Asia-Pacific region can make towards a flourishing and sustainable future.

Keynote Speakers

Greg Patmore, Emeritus Professor of Business and Labour History, University of Sydney

Melina Morrison, CEO, Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals, Australia
