DFG_KOPRO Int. for the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft investigates different concepts and approaches to ‘co-production’ practices based on Elinor Ostrom and the theories of the Commons. Built as an international comparative study between Europe and Latin America, in particular between Berlin and Santiago de Chile. The goal is to research the interdependencies and benefits of different forms of co-production and which specific new instruments of collaborative structures are currently being developed and tested in projects as well as what urban impacts cooperative approaches can manifest to socio-spatial material consequences. The second phase of the project is now set to further explore aspects of sustainability and scaling-up in the atmosphere of tension between contested and collaborative co-production.
