OECD Webinar – Worker co-operatives across continents: Policy and practical experiences from Japan

In 2020, the Japanese legislature unanimously approved a groundbreaking law focusing on worker co-operatives, providing for the first time a centralised legal framework for the country’s worker co-operative movement. Worker co-operatives are active in many countries, and across economic and social sectors (e.g., agriculture, education, industry, culture, services, infrastructure such as electricity and water etc.). They prioritise the provision of work/employment for their worker-members who also manage the co-operative.
