Democratising the Global Political Commons

Simpol-UK and our friends over at School of Commoning are holding an event in London. It is entitled Democratising the Global Political Commons and will be held on 07/05/2012. Here’s a brief description of the event:

Power today resides in the global space; that is, with entities such as transnational corporations or the rich who can move across national borders. Governments, being nationally rooted, cannot deal with global problems. So how are we, citizens, to reclaim the global political commons? How are we to hold global capital accountable?

Speaking will be the renowned commons advocate James Quilligan and Simpol-UK Trustee Mark Horler (that’s me!).  We would love to see as many of you there as possible, so book your place asap!
