= research project led by Antonio Manzoni and Jose Luis Vivero Pol, being prepared as of January 2021


"We plan to to come up with a state of the art of the current food-producing common lands across all the EU member states and beyond. The idea is to generate evidence - through the cooperation of various scholars and activists across Europe to produce a first estimate of common land hectares per country and in total. There is a substantial portion of European lands that is devoted to food-producing commons, even in urban areas (estimated between 7-10%).

The expected result would be a multi-authored paper with as many contributors as possible (to increase knowledge sources and epistemic regards on commons, support legitimacy, and geographical coverage, and having a broader constituency to advocate for the food commons later on)."
