Publications & resources

We have a number of short briefings on practical topics that commonly concern social enterprises - they are all available as PDF downloads here. If you'd like an overview of what exactly co-operative development involves, you could start with this briefing here.
Below are some more in-depth publications and research that we and others have developed for the co-operative movement (newsletters can be found on the 'About us' page).
