On December 7, 2016 the RCCPB and the China Ostrom Society hosted the “Ostrom Symposium on the Study of the Commons, Governance, and Collective Action in China” at the IU China Gateway. The event was opened by IU President Michael McRobbie who delivered an address memorializing the Ostroms and their legacy at Indiana University and beyond. Following the first session in memory of Elinor and Vincent Ostrom, the symposium attendees spent the remainder of the day discussing ongoing research projects and applications for methods on Chinese issues.
