Elinor Ostrom as Role Model and Mentor

Summary:
Bobbi Herzberg and Vlad Tarko discuss Lin and Vincent Ostrom and the Workshop in a recent Hayek Program Podcast.  The discussion focus on Lin's impact is worth listening to and fully absorbing. Her approach has had a huge impact on the way we have pursued things here at GMU, as I discussed at this celebration of her work at the APSA meetings. Listen to Bobbi's wonderful discussion of the choice of the name "Workshop", and also the deliberate flat nature of the organization, and the Ostroms' self-understanding of apprenticeship, citizenship and scholarship. Lin inspired in word and deed, and the Ostrom legacy -- both Vincent and Lin -- continues to shine through in ongoing work on democratic self-governance both here at the Hayek Program and at universities and research centers
