10-14 July, XVI Biennial IASC Conference, 'Practicing the Commons', Utrecht University (The Netherlands)

The Research Team 'Institutions for Collective Action' and the Strategic Research Theme 'Institutions', both based at Utrecht University, will jointly host the XVI Biennial Conference of the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC), to be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, from 10 to 14 July 2017. Abstracts for papers, panels, and posters to be presented at this conference can be submitted until 15 October 2016.  With the theme of the conference, “Practicing the Commons: Self-Governance, Cooperation, and Institutional Change”, the organizers intend to bring together the fast growing body of scientific knowledge on the commons as an alternative governance model. The increasing popularity of commons as a governance model is visible across the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe. Citizens increasingly form new collectives to provide energy, care, food, et cetera, and work together on the basis of self-governance and reciprocity. During the conference there will be plenty of opportunities to connect academic research to practitioners’ experience and vice versa. In the call for papers, panels, and posters, you will find an overview of the main themes to be addressed, including a list of potential research questions that might be the topic of paper presentations. Soon, a call for contributions to practitioners’ labs will also be issued. Keynote speakers will be (all confirmed): Prof. dr. Saskia Sassen (Columbia University, US), Prof. dr. Juan Camilo Cárdenas Campo (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia), and Prof. dr. Jane Humphries (All Souls College Oxford University, UK).
