Research Series

The Wednesday Research Series provides a forum for our Graduate Students (who received seed funding for their research projects) and Visiting Scholars to present their work in progress. Research areas of interest may include those traditionally central to Ostrom Workshop research—such as institutional analysis, governance, and democracy—as well as new initiatives or extensions into new thematic areas that support the broad mission of the Ostrom Workshop.

The presenter’s paper will be available in advance of their presentation for participants to read. The presenter will give a formal presentation (up to 30 minutes) followed by audience comments and discussions.

LOCATION: Ostrom Workshop, 513 N. Park (Tocqueville Room)
TIME: 12:00–1:00 p.m.

The Research Series is not live streamed. Presentations are open to the public, and you are welcome to bring your lunch.
