This introduction to Governing Privacy in Knowledge Commons discusses how meta-analysis of past case studies has yielded additional questions to supplement the GKC framework, based on the specific governance challenges around personal information. Based on this renewed understanding, a series of new case studies are organized around the different roles that personal information play in commons arrangements. The knowledge commons perspective highlights the interdependence between knowledge flows aimed at creative production and personal information flows. Madelyn will discuss how those who systematically study knowledge commons governance with an eye toward knowledge production routinely encounter privacy concerns and values, along with rules in use that govern appropriate personal information flow.
