New paper on social cooperation and reclaiming the commons in Campania
Co-authored by S.P. De Rosa and M. Caggiano
Salvatore Paolo De Rosa, Entitle fellow at Lund University, co-autors the paper “Social economy as antidote to criminal economy. How social cooperation is reclaiming commons in the context of Campania’s environmental conflicts”.
The article contributes to ongoing debates on how bottom-up social cooperation can halt and reverse processes of environmental and human degradation, dispossession and impoverishment, by proposing a synchronization of resistance and commoning practices. Framing the case as a cultural and physical re-appropriation of territory, it provides an analysis of strategies and limits for a symbolic and practical project of social re-appropriation of the commons.
