CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: The Elinor Ostrom Award on Collective Governance of the Commons
The Award, created to honor and develop the legacy of Elinor Ostrom, aims to acknowledge and promote the work of practitioners, young and senior scholars involved in the field of the commons. According with Ostrom’s large legacy the scope of the Award aims to be broad, including academic and applied work on traditional commons (forests, water bodies, pasture lands, fisheries, etc.), local commons, interlinked commons (forests and watersheds, fisheries and coastlines, etc), global commons, knowledge, cultural and virtual commons.
The Ostrom Prize will award work already done, for Scholars as well as for Practitioners.
Only members of the International Association for the Study of the Commons or of one of the Institutional Supporters of the Award (here is a list of the institutional Supporters) may nominate. The nomination process will be divided into two phases: the pre-screening process and the assessment process.
Deadline: May 25, 2014
