Lin Ostrom was not only one of the founders of the IASC 30 years ago, but she also founded, with her husband Vincent, the Ostrom Workshop at Indiana University in Bloomington, USA. For nearly 50 years, this has been a vibrant home to and community of scholarly and practical discourse for researchers engaged with Institutional Theory and Policy Analysis and to a large extent Commons Governance.
This webinar will introduce you to the history of the Ostrom Workshop and its current structure, working groups, research programs and opportunities for both junior and senior scholars, as well as practitioners. In particular, the webinar will focus on the opportunity that the Ostrom Workshop offers to academic career building and practitioner exchange. The panelists will introduce the visiting scholar program, teaching resources, data management initiatives, the colloquia and research series that are open to the public, among other initiatives and resources. A particular role the Workshop plays is with the Digital Library of the Commons as it includes a unique collection of working papers, conference papers, and other unpublished works. The panelists will show ways to access and search it.
After 20 minutes introduction by the panelists there will be room for an extended question and answer session.
