Workshop ‘Methods and data for longitudinal analysis of Institutions for Collective Action’ (The Hague, 8-10 Dec.)

The Research Group ‘Institutions for Collective Action’ at the Rotterdam School of Management at Erasmus University Rotterdam organises a specialised workshop dedicated to the study of institutions for collective action (ICAs), or institutional arrangements that are formed by groups of people in order to overcome certain common problems over an extended period of time by setting certain rules regarding access to the group (membership), use of the resources and services the group owns collectively, and management of these resources and services.

The goal of this workshop is to stimulate discussion on how existing methods in other disciplines can be used for the longitudinal study of ICAs, and how innovative methodological solutions can be developed for studying ICAs. During the workshop, (historical) databases of ICAs will be used on-site, to better grasp the challenges in this context.
