Who is behind the ZfgG?
The ZfgG is the only internationally distributed German-language periodical to deal with the study of co-operatives. It was first published in 1950 by members of the Institute for Research into Co-operatives at the University of Erlangen. Today, a number of professors and research institutes in Germany, Switzerland and Austria are responsible for the publication.
What is the ZfgG?
The ZfgG is an academic discussion forum for the legal, sociological and economical aspects of co-operatives. Work is judged to be academic not by virtue of its origin within a university, but by its style and quality. Close contacts with the real world of co-operatives is vital.
