Elinor Ostrom was one of the signers of the original Framing Statement prepared as part of planning for the first Summer Institute of Civic Studies.

“The political community in question is not to be associated exclusively with the state or the nation (or the regime or the country): there are various small local polities as well as global ones, with multiple crosscutting boundaries. Civic initiatives can occur at various levels, forming a mosaic of crisscrossing – and sometimes contradictory — efforts, a layered and complex democracy, drawing on such principles as federalism and subsidiarity.”
