Institutional Robustness:  How Institutional Arrangements Facilitate or Detract from Efforts to Sustain Ecological Systems

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 2:30 PM (Reception to Follow)

Douglass Campus Center, Trayes Hall

A special lecture by Elinor Ostrom

Introduced by Philip Furmanski, Rutgers Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs

We face major challenges in understanding how complex institutional arrangements affect efforts to sustain ecological systems. We will explore the importance of protecting both institutional and biological diversity and discuss how and why some institutional arrangements can survive many disturbances.

 

Elinor Ostrom is Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science and Professor at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University. She shared the 2009 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel with Oliver E. Williamson, becoming the first woman to win this prize. In her work, wrote the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, she "…has challenged the conventional wisdom that common property is poorly managed and should be either regulated by central authorities or privatized." Ostrom has developed a framework for understanding complex socio-ecological systems in the context of major environmental and political challenges.

 

We hope you will join next Wednesday for this very special event!
