Abstract: "The Common Property Workshop at Rutgers was co-hosted by the Ecopolicy Center for Agricultural, Environmental, and Resource Issues and the International Association for the Study of Common Property, IASCP, which held its Executive Board meeting the next day (March 1st). Bonnie McCay, Associate Director of the Ecopolicy Center and Professor in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University, organized and chaired the workshop. In her introductory remarks she said, 'we couldn't pass up this opportunity to bring together people who are doing the most innovative thinking about the problems of dealing with common resources, as well as the problems of property rights and property rights as they relate to and use of management of natural resources.' She introduced members of the Executive Board of IASCP and other participants. Then Bob Tucker, director of the Ecopolicy welcomed the group on behalf of Rutgers University. He explained the Ecopolicy Center, which looks at resource issues from an environmental point of view, ecological point of view and also an economic point of view. We're looking at environmental issues at agricultural issues, issues of land use, and so the idea for looking and studying common property is very appropriate for the center. We're also particularly proud to have Bonnie as the President-elect of the International Association of the Study of Common Property. So I think it is particularly appropriate that you are all here this afternoon - welcome."
