2014 (English)In: Common Goods: New Forms of Participation of Civil Society in Democracy and the Economy / [ed] Daniel Pallares Dominguez & Stefan Eriksson, Castellón: Universitat Jaume I , 2014, 7-19 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The management of commons is now at the centre of researchers' attention in many branches of science, particularly those related to the human or social sciences. This paper seeks to demonstrate how civil society participation in common goods or resources is not only possible but is also desirable for society because of the medium and long-term benefits it offers involved and/or affected parties. To this end, we examine the falsity of the discourse underlying the supposed incompetence of civil society to cooperate interpersonally in the pursuit of common objectives, and also analyse a specific example of the necessary and possible participation of civil society in managing common goods through biobanks.
