Conference of the International Association for the Study of Commons

Governing shared resources: connecting local experience to global challenges
The 12th Biennial Conference of the International Association for the Study of Commons
July 14-18, 2008
Cheltenham , England
Last day: Jan 14, 2008
The IASC 2008 global conference will take place in Cheltenham , England . The conference will be hosted by the University of Gloucestershire , with logistical support to be provided by the University's Countryside and Community Research Unit (CCRU). Cheltenham is located in the county of Gloucestershire, at the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is known for its scenic landscape, the integration of built and natural environments, cultural attractions, and historic architecture. For more information about Cheltenham, visit the Cheltenham Borough website .

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 recognise 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.
