Col·lacy is a multidisciplinary, holistic framework to understand, conceptualize and delimitate the “commons oriented sharing economy”

collacy 07 Col·lacy

In order to promote commons data platforms for digital sovereignty, first we need to investigate and articulate what characterise it, and to do so from a multidisciplinary perspective. And to reach that purpose, our tasks include to address the theories and debates around data-driven society and the sharing economy in order to provide an overall framework of commons oriented models, address the conceptualization and delimitation of commons based models in contrast to other non-commons oriented models, and the intersections between juridical/legal, economical, governance and public policy dimensions, as well as integrating and triangulating the analysis and results of the other tasks.

Col·lacy is related with DECODE platform project, which results will impact on this second project, defining the theoretical framework and the conceptualization of commons oriented sharing economy that will provide guidelines for the development of this European project, and its legal and economic models.

Our team is divided in the following dimensions:

  • Governance (including new cooperative models, platform cooperativism…): Ricard Espelt and Mayo Fuster
  • Economic: Bruno Carballa
  • Legal: Guido Smorto
  • Technological (including Blockchain, DAOs…): Marc Rocas
  • Technological (FLOSS): Manel Rebordosa
  • Public policies: Natalia Rodríguez
  • Culture: Elisabet Roselló
  • Gender and Ecological Sustainability: Paola Imperatore

Here’s a first draft published on the DECODE blog about the analytical framework of the democratic and procommons qualities of collaborative economy organizations.
