Visiting scholar at the Workshop for Political Theory

I (Ulrich Frey) had the privilege to be at the famous Workshop for Political Theory in Bloomington, Indiana, USA for three months. The workshop has been founded over 20 years ago by Vincent and Elinor Ostrom and our project improved significantly by this visit.
Not only did I have the opportunity to present our methods and findings to a Nobel prize winner, but to a whole group of international experts on different aspects of our research.
The feedback of these experts e. g. on forestry, social groups, socio-ecological systems and other fields as well was extremely valuable. But the support did not stop here. Different databases have been made available for our team, which is gratefully acknowledged and two database specialists took their time and introduced us to the data.
