Call for (Contributions to) Practitioners' Labs IASC2017 Conference 'Practicing the Commons' - deadline March 31, 2017

The organizers of the XVI Biennial IASC-Conference ‘Practicing the Commons: Self-Governance, Cooperation, and Institutional Change’ (Utrecht, 10-14 July 2017), hosted by the Institutions for Collective Action- research team and the Strategic Theme Institutions for Open Societies of Utrecht University, today have issued a Call for Contributions to Practitioners' Labs. Proposals can be submitted via the Conference Module starting today; final deadline is March 31, 2017.

As the organizers intend to bring together not only scholars working on commons, but also practitioners involved in commons or organizations dealing with commons and shared resources from around the globe, several Practitioners’ Labs will be organized. At these labs, practitioners have the opportunity to put forward their experience on commons-issues and at the same time discuss the challenges and questions they encounter with academics working on these issues, as well as with fellow-practitioners and policy makers.

You can submit proposals for full panels of 5-6 participants, join panels proposed by fellow-practitioners, take part in one of the Sponsored Practitioners’ Labs, or submit your own individual questions you would like to see addressed at one of the Practitioners’ Labs.

For all info and the full text of the call, visit Or have a look at one of the already composed Sponsored Practitioners’ Labs. You can also download the full call as PDF underneath.
