Change and institutional logic: overview and proposal of analysis of different institutionalist approaches

Resumo

During the past two decades, institutionalists have raised questions about “how” and “why” institutions change. The explanation of the process of institutional change also has a set of conflicting views, assumptions and divergent voices of dissent (Scott, 2008). Mahoney and Thelen (2010) claim that the three dominant approaches to institutional theory, sociological, historical and rational, point to problems in the explanation of institutional change. Our main goal is to raise the discussion about the main currents that explain institutional change, and contribute by way of identify the challenges that the institutional approaches have. We believe that to understand the process of institutional change is necessary to understand the mechanisms underlying the processes by which institutional models prevailing in a social context (country or organization or field) also appear (or not) on another. Also, we propose the use of institutional logic for analysis of institutional change.

Keywords: Institutional Change. Institutional Logics. Sociological Institutionalism. Rational Institutionalism. History Institutionalism.

 

Resumo

 

Nas últimas décadas, institucionalistas têm levantado questões sobre “como” e “por que” instituições se modificam. A explicação sobre o processo de mudança institucional possui ainda um conjunto de concepções conflituosas, pressupostos divergentes e vozes discordantes (SCOTT, 2008). Mahoney e Thelen (2010) afirmam que as três abordagens dominantes da teoria institucional, sociológica, racional e histórica apontam problemas na explicação sobre a mudança institucional. Nosso principal objetivo é suscitar a discussão acerca das principais correntes que explicam a mudança institucional e contribuir por meio da identificação dos desafios que as abordagens institucionalistas possuem em suas explicações. Consideramos que para entender o processo de mudança institucional é necessário compreender os mecanismos subjacentes aos processos pelos quais modelos institucionais predominantes em um contexto social (país ou organização ou campo) também surgem (ou não) em outro. Por fim,  propõe-se o uso da perspectiva de lógicas institucionais para análise da mudança institucional.

Palavras-chave: Mudança Institucional. Lógicas Institucionais. Institucionalismo Sociológico. Institucionalismo Racional. Institucionalismo Histórico.
