The Bloomington School, the New Science and Art of Association, and Cultivating Self-Governing Citizens
Elinor Ostrom was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Science (2009) for her pioneering work on institutional governance and the evolution of rules to address the problem of common-pool resources. In this conference, we explored the so-called “Bloomington School” and discussed some of the implications raised by their approach to liberty.
