"WHO OWNS THE ENVIRONMENT? LESSONS FROM
THE LEGACY OF ELINOR OSTROM," by Terry Anderson

We typically treat the environment as a commons to be managed by regulations from Washington. As Elinor Ostrom taught us, however, “managing the commons” may be more effective at the local level. This lecture will provide examples of how and why property rights and markets can improve environmental stewardship.

The inaugural Ostrom Lecture on Environmental Policy will be presented by Terry Anderson, John and Jean De Nault Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and William A. Dunn Distinguished Senior Fellow at PERC (Property and Environment Research Center).

This new lecture is part of our Program on Governance of Natural Resources and will be given annually in the spring.
