New Local publication – Think Big, Act Small: Elinor Ostrom’s radical vision for community power
October 21, 2020 | By Dr Simon Kaye
Executive Summary – Introduction
Ostrom is the intellectual hero of the community power movement. Her decades-long research confirms what many of us already believe, that people are less selfish – and more capable – than we’re conditioned to think. This has radical implications for how we run our public services and move forward as a society.
In this major new piece of work, Dr Simon Kaye unpacks her ideas, and presents their real, urgent lessons for the UK today.
