Prof. Bartosz Pieliński and Prof. Hanna Schreiber took part in Indiana University’s 7th Workshop on the Workshop Ostrom Conference (WOW7) titled Commons, Polycentricity, & Democracy: Building upon 50 years of Ostrom Governance Research, which took place from 19-21.06: wow.indiana.edu.

Prof. Pieliński presented the results of collaborative research with Prof. Schreiber in a presentation entitled: „Is Anyone Waiting for Institutional Grammar? A Case for (Not) Adopting the Tool in the Research on International Regimes”.

The WOW7 conference brought together researchers from around the world working to advance the concepts and methods of research pioneered by Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom and her husband Vincent in the 1970s. An analysis of the applicability of Ostrom’s methods to studying international heritage regimes was undertaken by Prof. Schreiber in the framework of NCN Sonata 15 grant. Interdisciplinary analyses, an atmosphere of friendly feedback and attention to the practical implications of the research being conducted are the hallmarks of the Ostrom Workshop and this event.

The conference was an excellent opportunity to make new contacts, plan future scholarly endeavors, and discuss the research on ICH governance conducted within the UNESCO Chair, which collaborates with the Ostrom Workshop.
