The International Journal of the Commons is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed open-access journal, dedicated to furthering the understanding of institutions for use and management of resources that are (or could be) enjoyed collectively.
These resources may be part of the natural world (e.g. forests, climate systems, or the oceans) or they may be created (e.g. infrastructures such as irrigation systems, the internet or (scientific) knowledge, for example of the sort that is published in open-access journals).
The IJC is an initiative of the International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC).
It is with great sadness that we inform you about the passing of Esther Mwangi, IASC council member, highly respected colleague and dear friend. You can share your stories at her memorial website.

The overarching idea of World Commons Week is to celebrate and draw attention to commons research and practice and devote a week toward promoting local-to-global events. This year, we are focusing on two primary activities: (1) Local Events; and (2) Global Keynote Webinars. Learn more and visit the website.
