Future of the Commons

Posted on

Elena Blanco, Associate Professor of International Economic Law, would like to invite you to take part in a roundtable event on the “Commons” organized by the Environmental Law Research Unit at Bristol Law School, UWE on 28th February 2018, 1-6pm (room 3S803).

The keynote speaker will be David Bollier, an internationally well-known commons speaker and activist. Margherita Pieraccini  (UoBristol); Yoriko Otomo (SOAS) and Philippe Karpe (CIRAD) will offer a brief 15 minute reflection on the theme of the ‘Future of the Commons’, either responding to David’s contribution, or taking the thinking in a new direction informed by their own experience and scholarship.

The aim of the event is to have a stimulating discussion that brings new intersections between commons activism, praxis and scholarship, and pushes thinking in new directions, potentially.

Places are strictly limited. Please contact Elena.Blanco@uwe.ac.uk if you would like to take part.
