The Study of European Co-operation and Practice of Co-operation in Russia (1890s-1920s)

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific


The analysis of the central and local co-operative press (46 titles) of two chronological periods – before WWI (1910-1913) and before Revolution (1916-1917) permitted to reveal on which initiative the associations were established and how they worked with the towns/cities. In the aspect of the development of the co-operative movement, the Russian rural areas had an advantage over the urban co-operatives. Rural co-operation aspired to the cities, created the networks, was largely involved in market relations. The co-operation served not only as a mechanism of delivery of agricultural goods to the cities but also as a way of constructing the social, economic and cultural rural-urban networks. And the initiative of their creation during the last prerevolutionary decade in Russia came frequently from the villages. One direct influence of foreign co-operative experience was mainly in cultural sphere.
