The Commons: A New Narrative for Our Times

The paper by Silke Helfrich and Jörg Haas examplains the concept of the commons and its relationship to debates about property rights. It also looks at the complex relationship between common pool resources and the communities that use them. This presentation is a sketch of current political and social conflicts; it also suggests how the commons profoundly challenges the neoliberal economic worldview. (Heinrich Boell Foundation, 2009)
