2017 has marked the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Society for Co-operative Studies as UKSCS was first known, and following an inaugural meeting held in April 1967 the idea of The Bulletin was announced. This later became the Journal of Co-operative Studies. This issue celebrates some of the early contributions and half a century of promoting co-operative studies both in the Uk and internationally.
