Working Groups & Workshop Affiliates

Endeavor to expand your work through working groups and affiliation

The Ostrom Workshop collaborates with faculty, researchers, and scholars locally and throughout the world who support our renewed mission “to build upon the theme of governance to understand and address major societal problems.”

The Ostrom Workshop has developed an international reputation for innovative research related to institutional analysis and common-pool resource governance. As we build on that legacy and focus on governance, we are expanding and strengthening affiliations with scholars from a broad range of disciplines.

Workshop Working Groups include nineteen interdisciplinary subjects under our existing research programs where scholars around the world can share and debate new ideas.
