The IASC is the leading professional association dedicated to the commons. The association, founded in 1989, is devoted to bringing together multi-disciplinary researchers, practitioners, and policymakers for the purpose of improving governance and management, advancing understanding, and creating sustainable solutions for commons, common-pool resources, or any other form of shared resource.
The IASC aims to:
– encourage exchange of knowledge among diverse disciplines, areas, and resource types
– foster mutual exchange of scholarship and practical experience
– promote appropriate institutional design
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of IASC Council member and friend, Esther Mwangi. A scholarship fund has been established in her honor. This scholarship fund is aimed to support African commons scholars. It is created in consultation with Dr. Mwangi’s family and is managed by CIFOR and the IASC. Your generous donations are most welcome. Please visit the Esther Mwangi Memorial Scholarship page here.
