Project Summary
INDIGO is an inter- and transdisciplinary project, which puts the discussion about shared land uses, land property and use rights within the interdisciplinary context of ownership regimes and the ‘governance of the Commons’. INDIGO partners jointly examine contemporary concepts of land use, ownership and the Commons and ways to govern them. Concurrently they take the history of the Commons, in Flanders and abroad, and their use and administration into consideration as background explanatory information. INDIGO also analyses different ownership regimes, the contextualised legal dimensions of property and use rights and their implications for spatial development planning practices and modes of governance.
