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