Artifacts, Facilities, And Content: Information as a Common-pool Resource
Law
History
Computer Science
Economics
Political Science
Information
This paper examines the notion that the enclosure of the information commons through the privatization of information that used to be in the public domain is part of a broad pattern of legal and political changes that are transforming several of the fundamental elements of modernity: science, scholarship, and law.
Commons in the New Millennium: Challenges and Adaptations
Economics
Political Science
Studying long-standing institutions for governing common pool resources at various scales can provide important lessons for governing new kinds of shared resources. In the end, institutionalizing effective processes for ongoing negotiation of the rules is more important than the rules themselves.
Drama of the Commons (Introduction)
Anthropology
Economics
Political Science
Sociology
Institutional arrangements embedded in a complex social context of rules and norms such as trust can overcome the deterioration and depletion of common-pool resources arising from individuals' rational self-interest; specific arrangements tailored to the inherent characteristics of a common-pool resource and the users can provide the optimal sustainable management of that resource.
Governing The Commons: The Evolution of Institutions for Collective Action
Law
History
Economics
Political Science
Sociology
Any group that attempts to manage a common resource (e.g., aquifers, judicial systems, pastures) for optimal sustainable production must solve a set of problems in order to create institutions for collective action; there is some evidence that following a small set of design principles in creating these institutions can overcome these problems.
Revisiting the Commons: Local Lessons, Global Challenges
Political Science
Sociology
The empirical and theoretical research stimulated by Garrett Hardin's 1968 conclusion that users of a commons are caught in an inevitable process that leads to the destruction of the resources on which they depend indicates that while tragedies of the commons are real, they are not inevitable.
The Quest for Meaning in Public Choice
Economics
Sociology
Psychology
Frameworks, composed of theories that are in turn composed of varying models need to be developed to study and make predictions about the complex behaviors that take place in social situations.
