Researchers have embraced the topics of entrepreneurship and institutions since the 1990s, but a great deal of work remains in addressing the role of informal institutions in determining entrepreneurial outcomes and the use of public policy to encourage productive entrepreneurship. This chapter highlights the importance of understanding informal institutions to best encourage entrepreneurship and foster economic growth. In order to assist researchers, an overview of the available measures of informal institutions is provided and the potential benefits of case-study approaches are addressed. The chapter identifies the implications of research regarding informal institutions for policymaking, and provides suggestions for research going forward.
