Hoe burgercollectieven van 'aardig extraatje' tot een vaste waarde in onze samenleving te maken. Opiniestuk van Tine De Moor in Sociale Vraagstukken

Tine De Moor gaat in het artikel 'Meer Ruimte voor de "commons"? op de website Sociale Vraagstukken in op de rol die burgercollectieven kunnen spelen als maatschappelijke onderneming. De vele tijdelijke solidariteitsacties van de afgelopen weken laten zien dat aan enthousiasme voor innovatieve ideeën, waaronder burgercollectieven, geen gebrek is in Nederland. Maar hoe maak je van deze 'aardige alternatieven', waarbinnen maatschappelijke meerwaarde meestal boven winst maken staat, een blijvende waarde binnen onze samenleving?

Burgercollectieven deel van de oplossing voor de post-corona samenleving? Opinie-artikel van Ton Duffhues, Tine De Moor en Eva Vriens in De Groene Amsterdammer

De huidige corona-crisis roept veel vragen op over de verhouding overheid versus markt, respectievelijk publieke versus private verantwoordelijkheid. De verantwoordelijke en solidaire burger is in korte tijd het rolmodel geworden. ‘We moeten het samen doen’ klinkt het overal en de hele dag door. Alle reden om beter naar het fenomeen burgercollectieven - waarbij burgers al ruime ervaring met “samen doen” hebben opgebouwd - te kijken. In hun bijdrage in De Groene Amsterdammer gaan onze teamleden , Tine De Moor, Ton Duffhues en Eva Vriens in op de mogelijkheden die brugercollectieven kunnen bieden in de post-corona samenleving.

Essay Tine De Moor over burgerparticipatie 'De pro-sociale burger als co-piloot'

[due to scope, only in Dutch]

De zoektocht naar een andere relatie tussen burgers en overheid zorgt voor tal van uitdagingen voor maar creëert ook kansen om tot effectief beleid te komen. Tine De Moor, hoogleraar aan de Universiteit Utrecht, gaat in het online essay 'De pro-sociale burger als co-piloot', op de website van het magazine Publiek Denken gaat nader in op dit vraagstuk. Volgens haar denken beleidsmakers te weinig na over de vraag op welke manier burgerparticipatie wordt vormgeven. Bovendien vindt elke gemeente zijn eigen wiel uit en is er een wildgroei aan terminologie. Burgers willen niet langer het landingsplatform zijn dat draagvlak veronderstelt, aldus De Moor. Integendeel, ze willen de aanvliegroute van beleid mede bepalen. In dit essay pleit zij voor een geïntegreerde aanpak van betrokkenheid van burgers, door de beleidsdomeinen heen. Het essay is mede geschreven binnen het kader van het DuurzaamDoor programma, het multistakeholder kennisprogramma van overheden en maatschappelijke organisaties, waarvan het programmabureau is ondergebracht bij de Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland.

New article on rediscovery of mutualism in current-day society by Eva Vriens and Tine De Moor

The academic open-acces journal Social Inclusion has just published a new paper by team members Eva Vriens and Tine De Moor, entitled 'Mutuals on the Move: Exclusion Processes in the Welfare State and the Rediscovery of Mutualism'. Mutual insurance systems have been on the rise across the world for about a decennium. In various forms and for various goods and services they respond to gaps left in social security by both governments and markets. Vriens and De Moor use historical insights to analyse several new mutual insurance organisations and discuss their future opportunities. And while not foreseen at the time of writing, this discussion has become more relevant than ever: Another boost in mutualism may very well be around the corner following the health crisis we’re facing all over the world.

Tine De Moor co-author of new publication in Energy Research & Social Science journal

In the paper 'Transforming innovation for decarbonisation', recently published online in Elsevier's journal Energy Research & Social Science, an international group of 15 academics (among whom Tine De Moor) from a wide range of disciplines argues that contemporary methodological approaches informed by complex systems and social practices theories provide urgently needed insights into innovation for decarbonisation. The authors advocate for research and policy agendas that are firmly grounded in social practices and take complex and dynamic interactions of energy supply and demand as departing point to seriously reflect about the transitions that are put before us, instead of just departing from a merely techno-centric point of view.

Tine De Moor delivered opening lecture  2020 Green Templeton Lectures series at Oxford University

 

The year 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of Governing the Commons, the landmark study by the late Nobel laureate, Elinor Ostrom. The topic of the commons has arguably never been more relevant: a Science feature in 2018 traced the growing reach of the concept from classic areas – water and land – to new frontiers of data, medicine, and other global challenges. The Green Templeton Lectures series of 2020, convened by Green Templeton Associate Professor and Research Fellow Dr. Dustin Garrick explores the commons in a world approaching peak population, deepening inequality, and growing threats to democratic forms of governance. The series will follow an arc that starts with lessons from the history of the commons and outlines the frontiers of research and innovation. Tine De Moor delivered the first lecture, entitled: 'More than a metaphor: the evolution of commons over the past millennium' in this lecture series on the 23rd of January at Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford.

New article on 'Smart Cities' by Damion Bunders and Krisztina Varró

On December 24, 2019, the open access article 'Bringing back the national to the study of globally circulating policy ideas: ‘Actually existing smart urbanism’ in Hungary and the Netherlands', authored by team member Damion Bunders and his co-author dr. Krisztina Varro   has been published in the SAGE academic journal European Urban and Regional Studies. Informed by empirical research on smart city policies in Hungary and the Netherlands, this paper argues that the policy mobilities approach tends to overemphasize the global and the local. Notwithstanding the transnational circulation of smart city ideas, the national scale continues being reproduced by these ideas as a relevant scale of urban regulation, discursive framing and strategy-making under globalization. To acknowledge this, and to move towards a more decidedly multiscalar perspective on actually existing smart urbanisms, the author suggest to incorporate the national scale, understood as a relational set of practices and discourses, more explicitly into the analysis.

New article on dynamics of engagement in Citizen Science by Tine De Moor, Auke Rijpma, and Montserrat Prats López

On December 12, the online open access academic journal Citizen Science: Theory and Practices has published the article 'Dynamics of Engagement in Citizen Science: Results from the "Yes, I Do!"-Project', authored by Tine De Moor, Auke Rijpma, and Montserrat Prats López. Citizen science projects need to attract citizens and motivate them to dedicate their energy and time to science. Recruiting enough participants and keeping them engaged throughout the project is often a big challenge for the scientists involved. In this paper, recruiting and engagement strategies are evaluated for the successful online citizen science project 'Ja, ik wil!' in the field of humanities. Quantitative measures are applied to track the quantity and quality of citizens’ contributions over time, allowing understanding of the dynamics of engagement in citizen science. The study shows that monitoring the level of activity and the quality of contributions provides useful insights about a project’s dynamics. It shows thata small core group of volunteers was responsible for most of the input to the project, that their transcriptions were very accurate from the start, and that prompt feedback on their performance was important to keep activity levels high.

New publication on networks and new mutualism

Eva Vriens, Vincent Buskens, and Tine De Moor jointly authored the article 'Networks and new mutualism:  how embeddedness influences commitment and trust in small mutuals', published online on 28 November in the Socio-Economic Review. Mutualism is reviving again in several countries, replying to state and market failure with an alternative, social insurance setup. In this article the authors, of whom two are members of our research team, study participation in such new mutuals with a focus on embeddedness and how types of embeddedness relate to members’ commitment to mutuals and their trust in the commitment of others, using a unique multilevel dataset on the motivations, beliefs and social relations of more than 5,000 members of 230 small Dutch mutuals.
