Call for Panels
From governing metropolitan areas to governing the commons and beyond, scholars and students at or influenced by the Ostrom Workshop have been interested in governance. This interest in governance has been pursued and advanced from many disciplinary perspectives, and it has been applied to a multitude of topics, problems, and situations—including domains such as cyberspace and challenges such as climate change, of which only a few were even dimly aware when the Ostrom Workshop was founded.
As we gather in Bloomington in June 2019 for WOW6, please join us in the discussion of this theme—Governance: Past, Present, and Future. It will be an opportunity for all of us to see and enjoy the vast range of topics and approaches relating to that theme, and how the study of governance has evolved and continues to evolve across our worldwide community of colleagues.
We are therefore now inviting panels that will explore, advance, and reflect upon the study of governance. We aim to assemble a program that will incorporate diverse theoretical, methodological, and empirical inquiries.
