Abstract

CAPELARI, MAURO GUILHERME MAIDANA; CALMON, PAULO CARLOS DU PIN  and  ARAUJO, SUELY MARA VAZ GUIMARÃES DE. VINCENT AND ELINOR OSTROM: TWO CONFLUENT TRAJECTORIES FOR THE GOVERNANCE OF COMMON PROPERTY RESOURCES. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp.203-222. ISSN 1414-753X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1809-4422asoc20150135r1v2012017.

The aim of the current theoretical article is to demonstrate the importance of Vincent Ostrom in the intellectual history of his wife Elinor Ostrom, especially in studies on the governance of common property resources grounded in the Institutional Analysis and Development Framework (IAD). Three elements that demonstrate Vincent's importance to this perspective are herein highlighted and analyzed, namely: the concern in pointing out the natural characteristics of resources as a determining factor in the development of effective institutional arrangements; the proposal of polycentric institutions; and the construction of a rationality model. Lastly, the paper listed some questions that may help structuring a positive research agenda in this field, with repercussions on contemporary themes and on important public policies.

Keywords : Vincent Ostrom; Elinor Ostrom; Governance; Common Resources; IAD Framework.
