W&L Economics Professor Named Prize Finalist Peter Grajzl has been named a finalist for the 2022 Elinor Ostrom Prize for two articles he co-authored in 2020.
Peter Grajzl, Ehrick Kilner Haight Sr. Professor of Economics at Washington and Lee University, has been named a finalist for the 2022 Elinor Ostrom Prize. The award is presented annually to the best full-length article published in the Journal of Institutional Economics (JoIE) in the preceding calendar year.
Along with Peter Murrell from the University of Maryland, Grajzl co-authored two articles in the JoIE in 2020. The first was titled “A machine-learning history of English caselaw and legal ideas prior to the Industrial Revolution I: generating and interpreting the estimates” and was published in August 2020. The second, titled “A machine-learning history of English caselaw and legal ideas prior to the Industrial Revolution II: applications,” was published the following month.
Each annual Elinor Ostrom Prize competition is judged by an international committee of experts in the field of institutional research. The award of £1000 is funded by the Foundation for European Economic Development. Winners will be announced at the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research Conference, which will be held online from September 6-9.
