India commons chrisshort 392x272The CCRI has announced the dates for the next run of the short course ‘Managing our Common Resources’.

They will start on Monday 10th October 2016 and finish on Friday 18th November 2016.

‘Managing our Common Resources’ will explore what we mean by the term ‘commons’, the notions of co-operation, self-interest and rational choice, and also tackle misunderstandings – particularly in relation to the concept of the ‘tragedy’ of the commons.

Course participants will 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.

This short course forms part of a suite of online short courses ‘Commons Management & Governance’, which was the first online programme aimed specifically at raising awareness of commons issues around the globe. It is 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.

It was jointly developed and is delivered between the University of Gloucestershire and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in both English and Spanish.

The cost of this short course is £70 for IASC members and £90 for non IASC members.

You can book and pay online at the University of Gloucestershire online store.
