About DCPC

The Digital Commons Policy Council is an international think tank established in 2021. The DCPC documents initiatives seeking to expand the digital commons and to use the digital commons to transition to a more ecologically sustainable and fair society. It does so by producing evidence-based public reports and how-to guides, and by making submissions to government.

After an internal debate in May 2021, DCPC members decided not to formally incorporate as an association. This will give us time to write our own rules. Until then the DCPC will continue to operate as a collective where decisions are based on deliberation and consensus.


The Digital Commons Policy Council was established thanks to the Ford Foundation and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Critical Digital Infrastructure Fund (2019-2020).
