Press Release

Anticipating the global wave of collective action and citizens’ collectivities

 

The number of citizens’ collectivities in Europe is rising exponentially. This trend is visible in other parts of the world too. Citizens are making themselves heard through what is often referred to as “commons” . They are taking matters into their own hands and organizing themselves in sectors such as health care, infrastructure and energy. A growing number of collectivities means a growing demand for knowledge and know-how, but also an exchange between theory and practice. How do you organize the governance for a collectivity in a sustainable way? What are the rules of the game that can best be agreed between parties? And how should governments respond and participate?

 

Between 10 and 14 July, academics and experts from the professional practice will be gathering in Utrecht at the XVI Biennial IASC-Conference: ‘Practicing the Commons’. This will be the largest international commons meeting ever, with 570 presentations from over 65 countries, delivered by academics, people from practice, and policy makers.

 

 

According to Tine De Moor (Professor of Social and Economic History at Utrecht University), the driving force behind the conference, the commons are booming, both within science as in society. ‘This is due to such issues as the increasing privatization and retreating government. People come together to seek solutions to this.’ The conference brings together practitioners, academics and other stakeholders, such as the government. De Moor sees governments wrestling with the question of how to deal with the burgeoning number of citizens’ collectivities properly. ‘It requires an entirely new way of thinking for governments. But this is crucial to the future of citizens’ collectivities. And citizens’ collectivities in turn are crucial to the future of our society.’

 

Keynote speakers

 

The conference will be opened by the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Jet Bussemaker. Keynote speakers are Saskia Sassen (Columbia University, USA), Jane Humphries (All Souls College, Oxford University, United Kingdom), and Juan Camilo Cardenas (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia)

 

Practitioners’ labs

 

Practical experiences will be shared in fourteen Practitioners’ Labs. During these sessions, it will become immediately apparent how citizens’ collectivities function, which issues practitioners are facing and what science has to contribute. The labs will address such issues as:

 

    The role collective action games can play, not only to measure propensity for collective action, but also to improve management of the commons (based on initial applications of collective action games for water management in Colombia and India).

 

    How can local governments incorporate the active involvement of the city inhabitants in the definition and management of public resources such as cultural spaces, city budgeting or administrative structures?

 

    How to deal with initiatives that conflict with other governmental core responsibilities, such as equality before the law? In several labs practitioners and experts from cities all over Europe will discuss these issues.

 

    In Kenya 20% of the 13.5 million farmers are currently organized in a producer cooperative.

 

    How can cooperatives play a role to meet future food demands, with an expected world population of 9 billion people in 2050?

  Hoveling, M. and Heukers, C., 2016. 'Coöperaties in Nederland, 2016', Coöperatie (June 2016), 14-17. Recently, the results of a survey performed by MA-student Merel Hoveling has drawn attention from news media. Merel has performed research for the Dutch Council for Cooperatives (NCR) by composing an inventory of current cooperatives in the Netherlands, based on the registrations of such cooperatives with the Chambre of Commerce. This has been the first national survey of cooperatives of its kind and shows the division of cooperatives over the societal sectors. Remarkable is that in particular sectors that are in processes of change and development prefer the cooperative as their organizational structure. The survey showed that there are over 8,000 registered cooperatives in the Netherlands, of which 2,500 are active cooperatives; the other cooperatives are either untracable or have very limited economic activities. The results of the survey have been incorporated in an article, co-authored by Merel in the June-issue of the magazine Coöperatie of NCR and announced via press statements by both NCR and Utrecht University.

Although the number of collectivities and cooperatives is considerably smaller than in the Netherlands, the emergence of new collectivities in Flanders is remarkable. The  number of new citizens' collectivities per annum has risen from 4 in 2008 to 48 in 2014, cumulating to a total of 480 citizens' collectivities in 10 different sectors of society; the main sectors in which new collectivities emerged were food, houding, energy, sharing economy, environment, and sustainability. The results of Fleur's reserach have resulted in a co-authored article by her and Dirk Holemans in the Oikos Magazine. Also the Flemish newspaper de Standaard published a newspaper article on the results of Fleur's survey.

'Samen voor ons eigen: hoe burgercoöperaties de overheid vervangen', Vrij Nederland, 18 August 2016, pp. 19-25. The authors of this extensive article have focused on the pros and cons of the current 'wave' of emerging collectivities in the Netherlands. Questions discussed are e.g.: how to make sure that more than only a limited and privileged number of citizens will benefit from new collectivities, how citizens' collectivities can affect, cooperate with, and improve regular 'old' institutions, how to create wide support in order to create a sustainable basis for managing citizens' collectivities (instead of a small and therefore vulnerable group of highly motivated volunteers). Tine De Moor is among the interviewed experts on this issue.

In this publication by Noorderbreedte social scientists Tine De Moor and Maarten Bavinck contribute two new dimensions to this discussion.
