THE SEMINAR “PLOUGHING UP THE LANDED COMMONS” WILL TAKE PLACE ON the 20TH OF JANUARY 2016, AT AUDITORIUM ARNBERG CASTLE, CAMPUS ARENBERG, KU LEUVEN (LEUVEN, BELGIUM).
The seminar, the second and last of an international seminars series (the first one took place in 9th of November 2015), is organised by INDIGO.
INDIGO is a inter disciplinary project that puts the discussion about shared land property and use rights within the interdisciplinary context of ownership regimes and the “governance of the commons”. INDIGO is coordinated by professor Frank Moulaert, prof. Pavlos Delladetsimas, prof. Bernard Hubeau, prof. Constanza Parra, Guy Vloeberg from OMGEVING, and dr. Pieter Van den Broeck, Leuven University. The team works in partnership with the Planning and Development research group of the Department of Architecture – KU Leuven (Be), the Government and Law research group of the University of Antwerp (Be), the Department of Geography of Harokopio University (Gr) and the private consultancy OMGEVING cvba (Be).
As INDIGO‘s team explain “the project aims to explore how spatial development (planning) can be improved to address contemporary and future challenges for socially and ecologically sustainable spatial organisation and development, by
– broadening, differentiating and enriching (concepts of) land use rights, ownership regimes and their governance, thus overcoming the dichotomy of private versus public property;
– renewing relationships between planning and ownership, imagining new ways of planning and governing land and resources and exploring the potential of the commons as a resource and a governance practice;
– offering solutions to the complexity of divergent land use claims, mismatches between property regimes and changing and often conflictive individual and collective uses;
– learning from and facilitating innovative forms of sharing land use (rights);
– improving (methods of) participation and co-production by stakeholders of new (inclusive) ownership regimes and governance modes.”
The main purpose of the conference is to share ideas, to promote a dialogue between experts from different disciplines and with different backgrounds in order to enhance the vision about Commons and to explore the dimension of the governance of the Commons.
The so call “symposium “ is orqanised in three main sessions, each one related with the others.
After the “Opening remarks”, the session “Socio-political approaches to the Landed Commons” chaired by prof. Constanza Parra, KU Leuven, will take place. The participants will be prof. em. Michael Edwards, UCL Bartlett School, prof. Massimo De Angelis , School of Social Sciences, University of East London and as discussant dr.
