The Role of Cooperatives and other
Self-Help Organizations in Crisis Resolution
and Socio-Economic Recovery
The ILO is increasingly reinforcing its capacity to respond to the different crisis
situations, based on its specialized experience within its core fields of expertise. Since its inception, the ILO has also been the leading international organization involved in the promotion and support of cooperatives. The aim of this study has been to explore ways in which these two fields of experience can be brought together for the benefit of those who suffer the consequences of crises.
