New Themes in Institutional Analysis

Topics and Issues from European Research

Edited by Georg Krücken, Carmelo Mazza, Renate E. Meyer and Peter Walgenbach

Institutional theory has become one of the dominant organizational approaches in recent decades. Its roots can be traced to Europe, and an important intellectual objective of this book is to examine North American theory strands and reconnect them with European research traditions. In addition, this book focuses on how organizations and individuals handle heterogeneous and challenging social conditions which are subsequently reflected in various forms of change.

Carmelo Mazza and Jesper Strandgaard Pedersen

Carmelo Mazza and Jesper Strandgaard Pedersen explore the role of timing for field-configuring events. In particular, they explore how big cities lately adopting the practice of international film festivals differ in the way they enact the vision of an international film festival with contents and practices primarily stemming from institutionalized standards. In their study of two festivals in two geographically and socially distinct contexts, Italy and its capital city, Rome, and Denmark and its capital city, Copenhagen, they show that time seems to be a factor that increases the variety of practices within a field. Contrary to conventional wisdom in institutional theory, late adopters may bring ideas of innovation and different practices, rather than producing homogeneity in field-configuration processes.
