055: Making a difference with Frank van Laerhoven

In this episode we all spoke with Frank van Laerhoven, a professor at Utrecht University and co-editor-in-chief of the International Journal of the Commons, a new partner of the In Common podcast. We talked to Frank about his time working for the Food and Agriculture Organization and his transition to academia. Frank discussed his concerns about both professional arenas and the gap between them. Are we really making a difference, and if not, how does this relate to the incentives that so many commons scholars study and also face? We asked Frank about his leadership of the journal and how some of these concerns can be addressed.
