    En miljarden project in Jakarta, opgesteld door een consortium van Nederlandse ingenieursbedrijven en adviesbureaus ontving financiële steun van de Nederlandse overheid uit het ontwikkelingshulpbudget. De te verwachten nauwe betrokkenheid van Nederland illustreert de verschuiving in het ontwikkelingsbeleid dat hulp en handel dichter bij elkaar wil brengen. 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.

    Primer

    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.
