UKSCS 50th Anniversary Conference


Northumbria University

Newcastle Business School welcomes

UKSCS 50th Anniversary Conference

Friday 1st September – Doctoral colloquium and UKSCS AGM

Saturday 2nd - Sunday 3rd September – UKSCS 50th Annual Conference – The Co-operative Common Wealth

This anniversary conference looks at the broad concept of ‘common wealth’, which requires re-thinking ownership, control and management of ‘public’ goods and services. 

So, can co-operatives and multi-stakeholder owned and managed enterprises continue to provide a ‘public’ alternative to the McDonaldization and Uber-ization of society? To create common wealth? A ‘shared society’? 


Can they influence business practice to promote and showcase sustainable and responsible enterprise? Does working co-operatively make for more meaningful jobs and lives? 

These are some of the questions we can explore, and we invite you to contribute by coming along to discuss these and other common wealth themes.
