    Introduction to the symposium: seed as a commons—exploring innovative concepts and practices of governing seed and varieties.Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach & Anja Christinck - 2021 - Agriculture and Human Values 38 (2):499-507.
    This Symposium explores how the theory of commons can be used to study, conceptualize and transform governance models for seed and plant varieties to counter ongoing trends towards agrobiodiversity loss and concentration of economic and political power in farming and food systems. Contributions to the Symposium present case studies from a range of geographical and socio-cultural contexts from the Global North and South. They show how seed and varieties relate to various known commons categories, including natural resource commons, knowledge and (...)

    Beyond the Material: Knowledge Aspects in Seed Commoning.Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach, Johannes Euler, Christine Frison, Nina Gmeiner, Lea Kliem, Armelle Mazé & Julia Tschersich - 2021 - Agriculture and Human Values 38 (2):509-524.
    Core sustainability issues concerning the governance of seeds revolve around knowledge aspects, such as intellectual property rights over genetic information or the role of traditional knowledge in plant breeding, seed production and seed use. While the importance of knowledge management for efficient and equitable seed governance has been emphasized in the scientific discourse on Seed Commons, knowledge aspects have not yet been comprehensively studied. With this paper, we aim to to analyze the governance of knowledge aspects in both global and (...)

    Reconciling Intragenerational and Intergenerational Environmental Justice in Philippine Agriculture: The MASIPAG Farmer Network.Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach - 2014 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 17 (1):52-68.
    The normative aim of environmental justice poses two challenges to the management of agricultural systems: improvement of access for today's rural poor to vital ecosystem services ; and sustenance of critical ecosystem funds to enable future persons access to vital ecosystem services. The paper investigates whether, and how, these justices have been simultaneously enhanced by the Philippine farmer network MASIPAG. It compares evaluation data on MASIPAG and conventional farming systems within a normative framework based on the justice conceptions by Rawls (...)

    Ecosystem Services and Distributive Justice: Considering Access Rights to Ecosystem Services in Theories of Distributive Justice.Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach - 2013 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 16 (2):162-176.
    As the increasing loss of ecosystem services severely affects life perspectives of today's poor and future populations, governing access to, and use of, ecosystem services in an intragenerational and intergenerational just way is an urgent issue. The author argues that theories of distributive justice should consider the distribution of access rights to ecosystem services. Three specific demands that a theory of distributive justice should fulfill to adequately cope with the distribution of access rights to ecosystem services, and show that Rawls??A (...)

    New Values for New Challenges: The Emergence of Progressive Commons as a Property Regime for the 21st Century.Nina Gmeiner, Stefanie Sievers-Glotzbach & Christian Becker - 2021 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 24 (2):187-207.
    ABSTRACT Property regimes are based on fundamental values of the society or group that designs and reproduces them. This paper analyses the ethical underpinnings of Progressive Commons in comparison to the values underlying private property and traditional Commons. Against this backdrop, we discuss the potential of Progressive Commons to address major challenges in context of the twenty-first century economy. Seed Commons serve as an example. Our analysis shows that Progressive Commons respond to contemporary societal and environmental challenges by re-interpreting the (...)
