Trends and Prospects of Cooperative Law

  • Hagen Henrÿ
Chapter

Abstract

This final chapter presents ideas on trends and prospects of cooperative law in lieu of conclusions. After a dominant trend aligning the legal features of cooperatives to those of stock companies, a new trend distinguishes cooperatives again from other types of enterprises. This is mainly due to a shift of the view of what competitiveness is. The author discerns as the new locus of competition the normative capacity of enterprises to relate to the various aspects of sustainable development. The renewed interest in cooperative law needs support by further studies which must take this trend up and deal with the challenges law making faces in a global world. One of the tasks consists in designing legal principles that could bridge the gap between modern cooperative principles and cooperative law.
