Scaling Up Common-Pool Resource Governance Theory

We recently concluded a wonderful workshop for the “Scaling Up CPR Theory” project. ┬áRepresentatives from around the globe participated, and we made substantial progress in database development, case coding training, and entering the data collection phase of the research project. ┬áThe next few months will be critical for moving the project along, but I am excited to see the energy and enthusiasm for a long-term effort that parallels the ground-breaking work from “Governing the Commons”. ┬áNext step will be to have the group collectively code some sample cases and compare results for intercoder reliability.
