Dossier on the commons

The Heinrich Böll Foundation (related to the German Green Party) has compiled an English-language web dossier on the commons. The dossier contains a number of articles that were published in German language in the commons book compiled by Silke Helfrich (founder of the well-known German CommonsBlog). I’ve contributed an article on The Commons of the Future: Building Blocks for a Commons-based Society (PDF), discussing how future commons-based societies might organize themselves. The article, which has also been published by the Commoner magazine, highlights and clarifies many of the points I make in my book, focusing especially on the role of the commons in past, present, and future societies.

The dossier contains lots of other interesting articles as well, by Silke Helfrich, David Bollier, Yochai Benkler, Elinor Ostrom and Pat Mooney, among others. It also contains an interview with Richard Stallman.
