This course offers students the ability to work on a governance or policy issue relevant to co-operatives and the social economy and to critically reflect on this work.

For other students their work may take the form of a written case study of a co-operative, credit union or social economy organization. In all cases, the result will be an experiential learning opportunity for students and new knowledge and expertise for co-operative and social economy organizations. Students must have completed JSGS 846.3 Co-operatives in the New Economy: Institutions, Governance and Policy in order to register in this course.
