Since the crash of the markets in 2008 and overt failure of the Copenhagen summit, the inadequacy of state and market mechanisms to address the most pressing problems of our time has become increasingly apparent and alarming. The current moment, therefore, finds activists, scholars and policy makers urgently searching for new strategies and tactics to not only retool, but also possibly restructure institutional arrangements in domestic and global settings. Over the last couple decades, the rhetoric of ‘the Commons’ has become an increasingly frequent heuristic and mobilizing technique. In the wake of urgent global challenges to both the European Union and the global system, here we are particularly interested in opening the Common Core Project as a platform for exploring the extent to which the comparative law model offers space for understanding and advancing the ‘Commons’. The Conference is organized into three streams (listed below) that take place over the 16th to 18th of June 2011.
Keynote speakers for this years event include, Erling Berge, Mauro Bussani, Boaventura De Sousa Santos, Anna Di Robilant, Ugo Mattei, Ruth Meinzen-Dick, Sundhya Pahuja, Fabian Muniesa, Gunther Teubner, and Filippo Valguarnera.
The Meeting will be held in Turin, on June 16-18 2011, at the CENTRO CONGRESSI TORINO INCONTRA
The official opening of the meeting, in plenary session, will take place on Thursday, June 16, at 10.30 a.m.
