Berlin Young Researchers’ Workshop on “The Study of Cooperatives“

The Raiffeisen Chair Economics of Agricultural Cooperatives at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, in partnership with the interdisciplinary Working Group of Institutes for Co-operative Studies (AGI), organize the Berlin Young Researchers’ Workshop on “The Study of Cooperatives“ that will take place from 27 – 30 March 2017 at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany).

The objective of the workshop is to give orientation to early-career social scientists interested in the study of cooperation and cooperative organizations. Our aim is to provide a forum for networking and discussion on methodical strengths and weaknesses for the study of cooperative organizations.

Training is offered on innovative methods for the analysis of cooperatives, namely

  • qualitative comparative analysis,
  • stated preferences methods, and
  • economic experiments.

The workshop is open for early-career researchers (PhD students and Post-docs of up to five years after their graduation) who conduct research in the field of producers’ and cooperative organizations.
