Description/Abstract
This past spring, members voted to change the name and the mission statement of the association. Overnight “Common Property” morphed into “the Commons,” as our association became “The International Association for the Study of the Commons.” This was, however, not a quick or rash decision. Rather it was a thoroughly discussed issue by the Council and members over the past four years. See especially CPR Digest No. 67, Dec. 2003 http://www.iascp.org/ECPR/cpr67.pdf and CPR Digest No. 70 http://www.iascp.org/E-CPR/cpr70.pdf for some earlier discussions on this topic.
