    The Commons, as an idea and practice, has emerged as a new social, political and economic dynamic. Along with the market and the state, the Commons is a third  mode of societal organization. The Commons and Peer to Peer (P2P) together form a system based on the practices and needs of civil society and the environment it  inhabits, evolving away from obsolete, centrally planned systems or the competitive dictates of market economies. But what are the Commons and P2P, and how do they interrelate? This Primer explores these concepts.

    En miljarden project in Jakarta, opgesteld door een consortium van Nederlandse ingenieursbedrijven en adviesbureaus ontving financiële steun van de Nederlandse overheid uit het ontwikkelingshulpbudget.

Onderzoekers betwijfelen dat de overheid de juiste afweging maakt tussen het belang van het ondersteunen van het Nederlands bedrijfsleven enerzijds en het uitvoeren van het eigen beleid van duurzame en inclusieve ontwikkeling anderzijds.
