Summary :

This project deals with two major themes, prevalently from a legal point of view: the Regulation 1435/2003 on the Statute for European Cooperative Society and European national cooperative law in all 30 countries involved in this research. These subjects are obviously connected to each other (as this study will clearly show, this connection is more relevant than one might

imagine, due to the particular structure of the SCE Regulation). They enjoy, however, a certain degree of autonomy within this research, which intends to offer a complete outline of cooperative law in Europe, which may be used in pursuing the objectives envisaged by the European Commission in its 2004 communication on the promotion of cooperative societies in Europe.
