Conference, Workshop, in Bloomington, Indiana, United States,


Planning is currently underway for the fifth “Workshop on the Ostrom Workshop” (WOW5) conference to be held at Indiana University Bloomington, June 18–21, 2014. The WOW conference is an event held every five years by The Vincent and Elinor Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis.

WOW5 will be organized around “Working Groups,” as has been done for the past two WOW events. (A conference theme is currently under development.) Each working group will plan and organize what they want to accomplish during these sessions. Our aim is to facilitate the plans of each of the separate working groups. If you are interested in forming a Working Group, please submit your proposal via e-mail to Gayle Higgins ( by August 30, 2013.

We will be posting information to this website as it becomes available, so please check back often! Additional information will also be provided in the November 2013 issue of the Polycentric Circles newsletter. If you have any questions regarding WOW5, please contact Gayle ( (Note: Past WOW papers and websites are available online at:

We are looking forward to celebrating this event with Workshop alumni, associates, staff, and friends. The Ostrom Workshop will also be celebrating its 41st anniversary next year!
