An agent normative society has to deal with two main con- cerns: how to define norms and how to enforce them. En- forcement becomes a complex issue as agent societies be- come more decentralized and open. We propose a new dis- tributed mechanism to enforce norms by ostracizing agents that do not abide by them. Our simulations have shown that, although complete ostracism is not always possible, the mechanism substantially reduces the number of norm violations.
