Mapping the New Urban Commons: Law and Resource Stewardship in the City

Shelia Foster Speaking

Georgetown Law Professor Sheila Foster delivered FSU Law’s Spring 2021 Distinguished Lecture via Zoom on February 24. Foster is the Scott K. Ginsburg Professor of Urban Law and Policy at Georgetown and holds a joint appointment with the Georgetown Law School and the McCourt School of Public Policy. Her lecture expounded on how we should think about ownership and control of land and physical resources that were once private, but end up back in the public domain. Professor Foster went on to redefine city as an “urban commons”—meaning that the city is a collaborative space in which urban inhabitants are central actors in managing and governing city life and urban resources—and discussed community land trusts and the Co-Cities Project.
