Think Big, Act Small: Elinor Ostrom’s radical vision for community power

Written by Dr Simon Kaye 21 October 2020

"This report draws out Ostrom’s insights for the UK in the context of a growing crisis in the relationship between people and institutions. It adapts and contextualises her work into a new set of practical lessons for ‘self-governance’ – where communities take control over the things that matter to them – and connects these with contemporary examples of community-powered projects in the UK" (Dr. Simon Kaye, 2020).
