'Governing the commons' - reply from Prof Briassoulis

I have just had a lovely e-mail from Professor Briassoulis saying:
I think it is OK to use my name and profile ... The globalization forces that are at work now and the deep cultural changes that are taking place make very difficult the task of governing the commons!* Best regards, Helen Briassoulis, Professor, Department of Geography, University of the Aegean 'Love responsibility. Say: It is my duty, and mine alone, to save the earth. If it is not saved, then I alone am to blame.' N. Kazantzakis, The Saviours of God; Spiritual Exercises. 'Να αγαπάς την ευθύνη. Να λες: Εγώ μονάχος μου έχω χρέος να σώσω τη γης. Άμα δε σωθεί εγώ θα φταίω'. Ν. Καζαντζάκης, Ασκητική
