Russell Smith is an Economist. With other colleagues in the Management School, University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC), he helped establish the Cardiff Institute for Co-operative Studies in 2000, and has since collaborated on a number of publications arising out of research being undertaken concerning cooperatives, social enterprises, and the social economy.

For the last ten, he was the Director of the Cardiff Institute for Co-operative Studies (formerly WIRC), researching cooperatives. Academically, he is still involved in exploring cooperatives as social movements, how they can reconnect with the labor movement, and in developing concepts that may help this process, such as “deviant mainstreaming” and “transitional demands and actions.”
