Profile

Prof. Tine De Moor (°Ghent, 1975) holds a PhD in History from Ghent University (2003) and a postgraduate in Environmental Sciences at the University of Antwerp (1999). In December 2012, she was appointed professor of Institutions for Collective Action in historical perspective at the Faculty of Humanities, Department of History & Art History at Utrecht University, a position she held until her transfer to RSM. At her previous position, Tine De Moor conducted research into the creation, functioning and evolution of institutions for collective action, past and present, from the early modern period in Europe until today. Institutions for collective action are forms of organizations formed from below, by the immediate stakeholders, with the aim of working together to pursue both personal (material) and societal interests. Issues that have been studied by her research team are the many energy and care cooperatives that have developed over the past decennia, the initiatives of citizens involves in short chain food supply, the formation of platform cooperatives and the renewal of the mutual as a form of insurance for the self-employed. Besides this she has been researching labour market participation and household formation patterns over the past millennium, and she has been actively involved in developing innovative research methods, through, for example, several Citizen Science Projects. She has been president of the International Association for the Study of the Commons and has set-up the peer-reviewed *International Journal of the Commons*, and she acts as expert in several national and international boards. In the past 10 years, she received several large research grants, such as an ERC Starting Grant and an NWO-VIDI.
