Costa Rica will Host the Continental Congress on Cooperative Law
In commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the First Continental Congress on Cooperative Law that took place in Merida, Venezuela, in November 1969, a new Continental Congress will be held this year along with the Regional Conference of Cooperatives of the Americas.
The meeting, which is the seventh in the series, will be held in November 2019 in the city of San José, Costa Rica, at the national Bar Association, which has provided its generous support for the meeting.
The Congress will go along the same lines as the previous Continental Congresses that made important contributions towards the progress of legislation and the development of studies of Cooperative Law in the American Continent, the last one being held in Montevideo (Uruguay) in November 2016.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to assess the progress made in this area since the first meeting fifty years ago with the participation of delegates from many countries in the Continent.
The invitation to participate is directed only towards lawyers linked to cooperative work in its various areas, teachers and scholars in the matter, magistrates and officials from public entities related to cooperatives. Cooperative movement leaders who will have a special invitation will also be able to participate.
The topics for the Congress address the most theoretically and practically relevant issues of Cooperative Law today and their development will be based on the analysis and discussion of the proposals presented by the delegates.
The details of the organization, topics, the date for the presentation of proposals and enrollment will be made known shortly.
