Four consumers associations - Altroconsumo (Italy), DECO-Proteste (Portugal), OCU (Spain) and Test-Achats/ Test Aankoop (Belgium) - came together to undertake a pioneering research project on the CC phenomenon from the point of view of its effect on consumers and society. In undertaking this research we set out a series of questions that we thought were important to resolve:
1. Do P2P collaborative consumption platforms add value for individual consumers?
2. Are CC platforms a safe environment for users?
3. Do P2P CC platforms produce the beneficial impacts that some claim they do at economic, social and environmental levels? Are they creating value for society as a whole?
4. Does the CC phenomenon represent a paradigm change or is it just a different way of doing the same business?
