The Elinor Ostrom Prize has been established in honour of the late Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom (1933-2012), who was an enormously creative scholar and an outstanding pioneer of the interdisciplinary field of institutional research.

Ewout Frankema is nominated for this award for the following article:

Dácil Juif and Ewout Frankema, “From coercion to compensation: Institutional responses to labour scarcity in the Central African Copperbelt”, JOIE 14(2): 313-343. 

The paper is on the Elinor Ostrom Prize shortlist together with 3 other articles.

A prize of £1000, funded by Millennium Economics Ltd. (the owner of JOIE), is awarded each year for the best full-length article published in JOIE in the preceding calendar year. Each annual prize competition will be judged by an international committee of experts in the field of institutional research.
