Abstract: "The workshop took place within the context of a EU-funded networking programme (Co-Govern), which aims to promote informed policy debate about the management of the commons in Europe and Africa, and to facilitate the sharing of ideas and experience among the practitioners working on the same issue. This document highlights the key findings emerging from the workshop. The intellectual contributions presented here are those of the workshop participants. For those contributions coming from papers presented at the workshop, this is explicitly acknowledged in brackets. For the purposes of this document, the 'commons' are very broadly defined as natural resources that are owned, managed and/or used collectively by several users, either simultaneously or sequentially; irrespective of the economic nature of the resource (whether 'common pool' or not) and of the property regime formally applicable to it (i.e. even if legally owned by the state). This includes, among other things, water, fisheries, forestry, wildlife, pasture and genetic resources."
