Call for abstracts - Governing shared resources: connecting local experience to global challenges, 12th Biennial Global IASC Conference, July 14-18, 2008, Cheltenham, England.
Organized by the International Association for the Study of the Commons, hosted by the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham, England.
The emphasis of the conference is the exchange of knowledge on shared resources or ‘commons’: between developing and developed world, between practitioners and researchers, and between old and ‘new’ commons. The overarching theme of governing shared resources aims to encourage discussion on new ways of using, managing, protecting and creating what many understand as ‘commons’. The themes recognize the wide variety of understanding over the term ‘commons’ and the need to link practical experience at the local level with larger global commons issues.
