Kerala’s Web of Cooperatives
* Article/chapter: Kerala’s Web of Cooperatives: Advancing the solidarity economy by Benny Kuruvilla
"In the southern Indian state of Kerala, Left parties, organized labour and people’s movements have ensured the continuity of cooperatives, social schemes and labour rights. This chapter is about how successful worker-run cooperatives function across the state despite the growing challenge of neoliberalism. Many of the individual cooperatives are connected through a web of cooperative finance, local governments and producer markets, and united in a movement to advance the solidarity economy."
