In a normative society there are two main problems: defining norms and enforcing them. Enforcement becomes a complex issue as societies become more decentralized and open. We propose a distributed mechanism to enforce norms by ostracizing agents that do not abide by them. The simulations have shown that, although complete ostracism is not always possible, the mechanism reduces substantially the number of norm violation victims.
