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.

Chapter 3: What are institutional logics – and where is the perspective taking us?

Topics and Issues from European Research

Christina Berg Johansen and Susanne Boch Waldorff

Abstract

Christina Berg Johansen and Susanne Boch Waldorff explore the theoretical foundation and analytical contributions of the institutional logics perspective. They identify two fundamental topics: 1) how institutional logics both guide and are guided by overarching institutional orders, and 2) how inter-logics relations create friction and space for change and agency. They use examples from different empirical papers to support and illustrate their investigation of these two topics. Further, they discuss how institutional logics contribute to institutional theory at large and inform our understanding of organizations in society.
