Online course 'Managing Our Commons Resources' scheduled for Feb.-March 2018

The Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI), the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and the IASC jointly organize a new online course 'Managing Our Common Resources', scheduled for February-March 2018.

More about the content
Managing our Common Resources’ will start with an exploration of what we mean by the term ‘commons’, explore the notions of co-operation, self-interest and rational choice, and also tackle mis-understandings – particularly in relation to the concept of the ‘tragedy’ of the commons. Course participants will then be challenged to explore the nature of property rights, the role of trust and the characteristics of rules and institutions as foundations for collective action. The final section of the course will explore the means for strengthening institutions and the design principles for commons governance.

Who can join?
The course is being targeted at practitioners involved in commons management and policymakers or others with responsibilities for management, or oversight, of use and access to commons resources. A wide range of community and non-government groups involved in creating or developing institutional arrangements for managing shared resources would also benefit.

Online learning and certification
The course will be delivered through distance-learning approaches making use of video and audio materials, readings, on-line activities, and group discussion forums, enabling participants to learn from one another as well as from the tutors. Those completing the course will receive a Certificate of Completion from the University of Gloucestershire.

IASC-members are offered a reduced rate of GBP 60, non-members can attend the course for GBP 100.
