The Elinor Ostrom Award on Collective Governance of the Commons Council opens the Call to nominate outstanding scholars or practitioners in the fields of natural resource management, commons, common-pool resources or collective action.
The overall objectives of the Award are:
- To acknowledge Elinor Ostrom’s legacy in developing commons knowledge and theory while making it accessible to wider and more varied audiences, both within and outside the realm of international academia.
- To promote Ostrom’s commitment to the training of students, young colleagues and practitioners.
- To promote research on the commons, collective action and governance of commons, as well as its application to the governance and sustainability of socio-ecological, cultural and knowledge commons of different types and scales.
- To acknowledge and increase the visibility of applied policy and civic experiences of governance, management, protection, and/or creation of different types of commons in different regions of the world, particularly those related to contemporary socio-environmental and social exclusion challenges.
The Award will be given in three categories:
- Practitioners: recognizing the work around the creation, defense, sustainable management and use of common resources by groups, communities, and NGO or federations of communities.
- Young scholars: involved in commons studies, or focused on community-level management or policy and governance, associated with either research, teaching, advising commoners, or a mix of these activities.
- Senior scholars: involved in commons studies and work with commons, communities and pro-commons policies. This category of the Award also aims to acknowledge commitment to, and impact on, training and/or advising new generations of commons scholars and/or practitioners.
