Welcome to this online version of the NIIS, the database developed at the Ostrom Workshop.
During my stay at the Workshop in 2010 I cleaned and repaired this database. Finally, here it
is online, so that anyone can work with it.
Thanks to Elinor Ostrom and Julie England for the help.
I would also like to mention the other researchers that are currently working on or have been
working with the NIIS: Elinor Ostrom, Ganesh Shivakoti, Marty Anderies, Miran Bozicevic, Elicia
Ratajczyk, Shui Yan Tang, Wai Fung Lam, Atul Pokharel, .
Check out their work with the NIIS. You can find their publications at the Digital Library of the Commons.
Please take also a look at the Common Pool Resource Database (CPR), which is available online
at Arizona University here.
