  • Session Details

    In the understanding of Landed Commons there seems to be a deficiency of an integral theoretical perspective which can rely on conceptual and historical elements that allow to building dialectical relationships with distinct governance, regulative and policy practices. This is deficiency is partly explainable by the fact that LC have been analyzed in a relative autonomy from specific socio-economic dynamics, being seen either as a remittance from the historical past and -with respect to existing or the newly emerging ones- as a self contained entity somewhat marginal to the structure of the general production and distribution system (Massey and Catalano 1978).

    In this respect a key feature that tends to dominate LC perceptions (Ostrom 1990: 50-51) is the undermining of their position and function-as part of the dynamics of land tenure regimes; and as a result they are not placed within the broader capital land relationships, as determined by the free movement of capital into land. Historically landed commons should be seen within this relationship and hence -under different terms and conditions- can act as an obstacle or as complementary element to the flow of capital to land. In any event Landed Commons configure their specific role within capital land relationships, relying predominately on their collective insights and in turn by inherent land use and value parameters; all of which are consolidated by the appropriate rights.

  • Session 1.2. (Un-)intended outcomes of commoning practices in open space

    OPEN SESSION

    Chair: Hans Leinfelder (KULeuven)
    Presenters: Annette Kuhk (KULeuven), Sofia Saavedra Bruno (KULeuven)
    Discussant: Diana MacCallum (Curtin University)

     

  • Session Details

    The aim of this session is to try to understand how (future) landed commons can be coconstructed in sites in open space. A particular concern in this is the study of the origins and the emergence of such processes, and the moulding/ adaptation/ restriction of original objectives in their further development.

  • Call for Papers

    Contributions: The session is organised as a debate, with multiple short pitches to introduce cases or issues (5 minutes to share a case, to forward statements, to reflect on an experience, etc.). Please, send an abstract about the case or issue, which you want to disucss in this session. Papers can not be presented at full length. However, there is a possibility to be accepted with a full paper for the INDIGO special issue.
