Elinore Ostrom would be an excellent choice. She's very well known in conflicting uses of natural resources, and has been doing some ABM exploration of collective choice, common property use (tragedy of the commons) ideas. She may not be available on this short of notice, but if she is, she's not too far away (at Indiana U).

Elizabeth Wood (http://pantheon.yale.edu/~ejw33) has invited several ABM folks to SFI and would probably have some interesting ideas.. I don't think she has first hand experience with agent modelling, but she's a clear thinker and she would know the literature of others in Political Science that have written about ABM models. Maybe I'm just trying to instigate a Paul Johnson and Elizabeth Wood collaboration. :-)

Incidentally, she's also married to the great economist Sam Bowles. They are the two hardest working people I've ever witnessed! He's done ABM models, but I suspect we'd be unable to persuade him to come.
