Welcome to IASC Europe!

We would like to facilitate events by and for IASC members in Europe and post-Soviet region. If you want to organize something, have suggestions or questions, contact the coordination team.

About IASC Europe

The IASC was founded on May 27, 1989 and its legal address has been at Indiana University since then. Various global, regional and topical conferences have been organized in Europe over the years. Since 2018 we started to decentralize our coordination, particularly to facilitate understanding and practice of commons on more regional and local levels.  We would like to support communications among the members as well as potential members of the Association within the region/country/thematic areas, and reach out to broader external audiences.
