Join us as we celebrate this years #CoopFortnight with a Covid-19 free virtual lecture. Sonja Novkovic will take us through a discussion on “Humanism, participation and co-operative governance.”
Sonja Novkovic is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of co-operatives. She is Professor of Economics and Academic director of the International Centre for Co‑operative Management at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada. Well-known internationally in her role as Chair of the International Co‑operative Alliance Research Committee, she is also a member of the Council of Economists at the USA’s National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA). Her research interests are in the field of economic democracy, including labour‑managed and co‑operative firms, the social economy and comparative economic systems.
