EOAR SEMINAR, MARCH 2023
BIOMEDICINE AND THE MANY USES OF KNOWLEDGE COMMONS
Prof Michael Madison (School of Law, University of Pittsburgh)
This presentation will situate the Governing Knowledge Commons (GKC) research framework in the context of research into governance of biomedicine resources, with specific attention to how the framework can help scholars and practitioners assess the virtues and drawbacks of commons governance. The GKC framework was conceived as a device for systematic but descriptive research on a case-by-case basis, leaving open the questions of generalizing from case-specific results, normative assessment, and prescriptive implications. The presentation will explore how experience with the framework has sharpened its aims, with more refinements set to come.
When: Wednesday, 29th March 2023, 9-10 AM (ACDT)
