国际公共事物学会(IASC)第17届双年会征稿启事

blank

        国际公共事物学会(IASC)是一个国际性学术组织,致力于聚集并促进跨学科、跨区域和不同资源研究领域的研究者、实践者和政策制定者之间的交流,以深入理解和创新公共池塘资源、公共资源和各类共享资源的可持续利用,促进适当的制度设计,改善治理和资源管理,阻止“公地悲剧”的发生。IASC前身是1989年成立的公共产权网络(IASCP),2009年诺贝尔经济学奖得主埃莉诺·奥斯特罗姆(Elinor Ostrom)是创始人之一,现在册会员有1000多人和机构。

        IASC每两年举办一次全球规模的国际大会,第17届双年会将于2019年7月1-5日在秘鲁利马(Lima, Peru)举行,主题为“保卫公共事物:挑战、创新和行动”。本次会议的主办方是秘鲁天主教大学社会科学院和哥伦比亚波哥大洛斯安第斯大学经济学院。

        此次全球会议诚邀有兴趣的中国学者参会,并按会议指引投稿。清华大学公共管理学院和清华大学中国农村研究院将派师生参与此次会议,并向大会申办了两个分论坛,主题分别是“中国乡村振兴:公共事物治理的视角”和“不同情境下公共事物治理的设计原则”,欢迎从事相关研究的学者投稿并共同参会。

论文摘要征集

        清华大学公共管理学院王亚华教授将组织两个分论坛参加IASC2019年大会。现征集与两个分论坛主题相关的英文论文摘要,共同赴会。以下为两个分论坛的征文信息:

中国分论坛1:中国乡村振兴:公共事物治理的视角(大会主题4:第一产业和土地海洋的公共事物)

        该分论坛旨在探讨中国乡村振兴中的公共事物治理问题,和公共事物治理理论在中国乡村振兴实践中的应用。乡村衰败是世界性的趋势,具体表现为乡村公共事物治理衰败、公共资源废弛、村庄可持续发展动力丧失。2018年,中国政府提出实施乡村振兴战略,挑战乡村衰败的世界性难题。本论坛将分享以下理论和实践经验性的问题:

        中国乡村治理中存在哪些公共事物治理问题?动因和机制是什么?

        应对乡村衰败的政策和经验有哪些?机制是什么?难点在哪里?

        外部力量促进乡村内部可持续振兴的可能性机制是什么?

        乡村振兴中如何设计制度协调和激励各个主体之间的合作关系?

        世界范围内可供中国参考的的乡村振兴经验和教训有哪些?

        中国乡村振兴的故事对全球乡村复兴的启发是什么?

关键词:中国、乡村振兴、农村公共事物治理、森林、牧场、水

中国分论坛2:不同情境下公共事物治理的设计原则(大会主题1:二十一世纪保护公共事物的制度和行动)

        该分论坛旨在分享关于不同情境下公共事物治理制度设计原则的研究。诺贝尔经济学奖获得者奥斯特罗姆基于对多个小规模资源使用者自主治理案例的比较研究,提出了有别于私有化和国有化克服公共事物治理困境的第三条路径,并归纳出成功的制度设计的八项原则。但是不同的情境,如资源的流动性大小和存储性质、资源禀赋大小、资源规模大小、使用者群体规模大小、使用者群体流动性大小、经济社会环境的变化速率、政治或技术条件等,成功的公共事物治理制度的关键点不一样。如何在不同情境下应用制度设计原则诊断现实制度,构建稳健的良治体系,是近二十年以来理论与实践中不断讨论的话题。本论坛将分享以下问题:

        如何测量制度绩效,制度设计原则如何决定制度绩效?

        如何理解制度设计原则之间的结构性关系?

        影响不同属性、不同规模的公共事物治理的关键制度设计原则是什么?

        哪些情境变量影响着公共事物治理的制度绩效?影响机制是什么?

        不同情境下,哪些制度设计原则是成功治理所必要的?

        如何对不同公共事物治理制度设计原则进行比较研究?

关键词:治理情境、设计原则、绩效评估、比较研究

        The International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC),founded in 1989 as The International Association for the Study of CommonProperty (IASCP), is devoted to bringing together multi-disciplinary,multi-area, multi-type resource-study researchers, practitioners andpolicymakers for the purpose of advancing understanding, and creatingsustainable solutions, promoting appropriate institutional design, improvinggovernance and management, and preventing from “the tragedy of the commons” forcommons, common-pool resources, or any other form of shared resource. E.Ostrom, the owner of 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics, was one of the founders ofthe IASC, the number of whose members has been over 1000 persons andinstitutes.

        IASC holds global conferences every two years.

The School of Public Policy Management andthe China Institute for Rural Studies at Tsinghua University will organizestudents and researchers to join in this conference with two panels – “China’sRural Revitalization: A Perspective of Commons” and “Design Principals ofCommons Governance in Various Contexts” – welcome all research elites withgranting papers related to the panels and joining in the conference together.

Call for Panel-Paper Abstract

        Call for paperabstracts for two panels organized by Prof.Yahua WANG from School ofPublic Policy Management at Tsinghua University.

China's Rural Revitalization: A Perspective of Commons

        The aim of this session is to explore the commons issues and the application of the commonstheory in China’s rural revitalization practice. Rural decline is a worldwidetrend, including rural commons governance waned, common-pool resourceabandoned, and development dynamic lost. In 2018,the Chinese government proposed theStrategy of Rural Revitalization (SRR) to challenge the worldwide dilemma ofthe rural decline. Following research questions will be welcome.

        Are there any commons issues in China’s rural governance? And what are they? Whatare the drivers and mechanisms in the China’s rural decline?

        How does China solve rural decline problems? What is the most difficult matter in the solution and experience?

        Are there any possible pathways for outsiders to facilitate rural internalrevitalized sustainably?

        How shall we design policy and institutional system to achieve successfulcollective action in China’s rural revitalization?

     Are there any lessons or experiences from the other countries to help China’s ruralrevitalization practice?

     Whatcan China’s experience of the SRR inspire the rest of the world forrevitalizing the world’s countryside?

Keywords: China, rural revitalization, rural commons, forest, graze, water

Design Principalsof Commons Governance in Various Contexts

       The objective of this panel is to share the study of design principles for governing the commonsin various contexts. Based on comparing various cases of self-governingsmall-scale common-pool resource, Prof. Elinor Ostrom provided another approachto solve the dilemma of commons governance, which is different from privatization and nationalization, and concluded eight design principles forsuccessful governance. However, there will be different necessary mechanismsfor successful institutions under diverse contextual variables, e.g. resourcemobility and storage, resource endowment, resource scale, user group size, usermigration, socio-economic change pace, political and technological conditions.This panel will concern research questions as follows.

      How can institutional outcomes be defined and measured for diverse commons, and howcan the design principle matter?

       How can the configurations of the design principles be understood?

       What is/are the necessary design principles for different kinds of commons or invarious scales?

       What contextual variables will influence performances of commons governance, andhow?

      Underdiverse contexts, which configuration of the design principles is necessary forthe commons governance?

      How can we research and compare institutional configurations of the designprinciples in different cases, and what kind of research methods can work well?

Keywords: governance context, design principals, performance assessment,international comparison
