    How do we define the Commons? And how can the concept be used to achieve social, political and economic change? This primer explores the potential of the Commons together with Peer to Peer (P2P) to form a system based on the needs of civil society and its environment. This offers a viable alternative to obsolete, centrally planned systems or the amorality of market economies. We look at how basing civil society on P2P dynamics and Commons practices could enable a more egalitarian, just, and environmentally sustainable society.

    Doha: Dormant but Dangerous

    Susan George
    02 December 2006
    While there are still attempts to revive the WTO Doha Round, the EU is concentrating on bilateral and pluri-lateral trade agreements. These are more dangerous to smaller countries, so including a ‘democracy clause’ in the agreements is even more important, but also more difficult, says George in her speech at the conference “Fundamental rights and the global market.”
