A paper by four researchers in GSPIA's Center for Governance and Markets has been shortlisted for the Elinor Ostrom Prize, which recognizes the top research articles published in the Journal of Institutional Economics over the past year. 

The article — “Community policing on American Indian reservations: a preliminary investigation” by GSPIA Professor Jennifer Brick Murtazashvili and Associate Professor Ilia Murtazashvili, and Adam Crepelle and Tate Fegley — is part of the Pitt center’s initiative on understanding barriers to prosperity in Indian Country.

Jennifer Brick Murtazashvili, pictured above, is founding director of GSPIA's Center for Governance and Markets, where the four authors conducted their research as fellows, faculty and postdocs.

Crepelle, a research fellow in the center and director of the tribal law and economics program at George Mason University, and Ilia Murtazashvili, associate professor in Pitt’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and Center for Governance and Markets co-director, were fellows with the Hoover Project on Renewing Indigenous Economies at Stanford University.

The winner will be announced at the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research conference in Catania, Italy, September 20-23.
