This chapter discusses the mainstreaming of co-operatives against the background of the global financial crisis of 2008. It defines the concept of mainstreaming, examines the ‘debt trap’ which many organisations experienced following the crisis, notes the greater levels of resilience among co-operative and mutual organisations, and proposes an initial framework to monitor the mainstreaming of co-operatives.

Keywords:   Co-operative movement, 2008 financial crisis, Debt, Resilience, Entrepreneurship, Democratic control, Ownership, Participation, Economic development
