FELLOWSHIP: Prof. Elinor Ostrom International Fellowship on Practice and Policy on Commons

The Foundation for Ecological Security in association with the International Association for the Study on the Commons (IASC) invites applications for international fellowships on Practice and Policy on Commons. The fellowship is being announced as a tribute to Prof. Dr. Elinor Ostrom, who passed away earlier this year, after decades of invaluable contribution to the analysis of economic governance, especially the commons. Elinor Ostrom’s work has been a major inspiration for all researchers engaged with work on institutions for collective action around a wide range of subjects related to resource management and self-organized governance systems. She strongly believed in creating links between local practice, academic research and policymaking, which she considered critical to shape a better world.
The fellowships are aimed at promoting sound policies for the governance and management of Commons. Exemplary work that intertwines or explores the linkages between research, practice and policy at local, national or regional levels would be of special interest. Collaborative efforts between practitioners, researchers (and policy makers) aimed at informing Policy would also be of interest.

The fellowship may address broad themes such as:
