The Commons

Communities create rules and negotiate fair and practical ways of allocating benefits, and devising rules to protect their common wealth. These processes of commoning are based on shared purpose and trust within a community.Inkyfada, in partnership with the Heinrich Böll Foundation Tunis, has produced featured stories to shed light on commoning experiences in Tunisia. This podcast is part of the same partnership to promote this concept, including the book "Free, Fair and Alive" by David Bollier and Silke Helfrich serving as an additional avenue for understanding.

The Commons are a set of ongoing practices, not an inert physical resource.

Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.

In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.

Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
