integration of the co-operative movement
Integration among cooperatives is one of the principles promoted by these social-economic organizations. A well-integrated cooperative movement is a system that has the potential to contribute to the common good of society in many different ways, including the democratization of the economy. This research explored the current integration status of cooperatives in Puerto Rico and the factors that affect it, adapting work from the strategic alliance theory as a framework. The findings demonstrate a low level of integration and the factors identified in the strategic alliance literature are also present in cooperatives’ integration efforts. Also found was a lack of understanding about integration among participants and a capitalist behavior that struggles with cooperative principles and purposes.
