"I believe the commons—at once a paradigm, a discourse, an ethic, and a set of social practices—holds great promise !...). More than a political philosophy or policy agenda, the commons is an active, living process. It is less a noun than a verb because it is primarily about the social practices of commoning—acts of mutual support, conflict, negotiation, communication and experimentation that are needed to create systems to manage shared resources. This process blends production (self provisioning), governance, culture, and personal interests into one integrated system. David Bollier "[1].

Remix the Commons has elaborated (in French) a table summarising the different approaches to the commons (economic, legal, cultural, ecological, knowledge-based, political): you will find it here:

Approaches to the Commons (July 2019)
Economical Legal Cultural Ecology Knowledge Political
Theory Thinking about the value of voluntary and peer-to-peer contributions as producers of the commons (material or immaterial). Thinking about a third category of goods: collective property, distinct from public property and exclusive private property. Rethinking the governance of the commons based on Commoning Managing rival goods (natural resources) outside the market and the state: bundles of rights distributed between producers and users. Access to knowledge for all, fighting against the extension of IPR as a new form of enclosure. Horizontal subsidiarity. Citizen participation. Refounding the anarcho-communist project on the common good.
