This chapter investigates the concept of agency as a key tool for mainstreaming co-operative ideas and practices, drawing upon various strands of contemporary anthropology, feminist theory, philosophy, and sociology. The chapter argues that, if co-operatives hope to gather sufficient momentum to challenge neo-liberal orthodoxies, they must develop effective networks of advocates and institutions that can promote co-operative ideas in a co-ordinated, self supporting and coherent way.
