The Co-operative Education Trust Scotland is pleased to announce the launch of its new higher education resource ‘The Co-operative Model in Practice: International Perspectives’. This timely collection of essays draws together the research of fourteen international scholars to examine how the co-operative business model functions in practice within diverse cultural and social contexts. Model in Practice will be of interest to students and scholars in economics, business studies, sustainable development, history, and organisational theory and behaviour. It also serves as a valuable resource for policy-makers seeking alternative models for organising enterprise and society. Available for free under the Creative Commons license, Model in Practice can be accessed at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/cets/resources/coop-model/.
