Faces of the Commons Research
The objective of the research is to reinforce the CC strategic process with a landscape of CC affiliates, their motivations, needs and potentials. The idea is to understand what the affiliates bring into the network: who they are, what motivates them to be part of it and what challenges they face. It is also important to understand how the network can help them to make their groundwork easier. It is also verified what sense of collective identity the affiliates have and what they perceive as greatest accomplishments of the global movement.
The research lead was Anna Mazgal, from Poland, with a series of researchers working with her from inside and outside the network.
