The tragedy of the commons

Many of the world´s common resources are in danger – a recent example being the bluefin tuna. 

Increased international focus is necessary to understand the depth of the problem and what remedies should be used.

  • Public resources
    • Radio frequencies - Unlicensed frequencies used for wireless communications especially 802.11 a/b/g, detailed under Part 15 (FCC rules) are vulnerable to the overuse of high power transmitters, especially overdriven transmitters with dirty signal profiles, and especially when combined with omnidirectional antennas.
    The Digital Library of the Commons (DLC) is a gateway to the international literature on the commons. This site contains an author-submission portal; an archive of full-text articles, papers, and dissertations; the Comprehensive Bibliography of the Commons; a Keyword Thesaurus, and links to relevant reference sources on the study of the commons.

    The International Journal of the Commons (IJC) is a new journal set-up by the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC). As an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed open-access journal, the IJC is dedicated to furthering our understanding of institutions for use and management of resources that are (or could be) enjoyed collectively. 

    Using resources collectively is often believed to be problematic. In pratice however, there are many cases to be found of situations where common pool resources are used in a sustainable way. In this journal we want to offer room to both sides of the debate, and we hope our interdisciplinary approach will contribute to creating a more balanced view of how common pool institutions actually work.
