International Workshops

On April 16-17, 2012, Purdue will host a 2-day international workshop on the role of informal institutions in addressing intractable global policy problems. Organized by faculty in multiple departments, and sponsored by a Global Policy Research Institute seed grant and other interdisciplinary centers on campus, the workshop will consist of several sessions dedicated to both the theory of how informal institutions shape human behavior, and the application of those informal institutions to generating new possible pathways for progress to intractable problems including:

  • Climate change
  • Women's human rights
  • Food security

As part of the program, Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom will give a Discovery Lecture Series talk on the role of informal institutions in solving global problems on Monday afternoon, April 16. (More information will follow on that event in a separate email). If you have any questions, feel free to contact the conference organizers, Laurel Weldon or Leigh Raymond.
