The International Association for the Study of the Commons (IASC) was founded in 1989 as The International Association for the Study of Common Property (IASCP). It is a non-for-profit organization that sees as its mission to further the understanding of institutions for the management of resources that are or could be held or used collectively as a commons by communities in developing and industrialized countries. According to its vision statement, the goals of the association are:

to encourage exchange of knowledge on the commons among diverse disciplines, areas, and resource types to foster mutual exchange of scholarship and practical experience to promote appropriate institutional design
