We encourage work that brings forward novel topics, employs innovative methodology, and/or advances fresh perspectives of inquiry. Approaches that drift away from present mainstream themes will enhance and develop our understanding of institutions and institutional phenomena. We are especially keen to hear voices from literature that does not belong to the standard reference list of institutional theory, and/or to learn about scholarly endeavors that draw on work not available in English. Also, in line with the new institutionalism network’s spirit, the workshop encourages collaboration, particularly among scholars drawing on or bridging different disciplines. We look forward to receiving submissions by experienced academics, young scholars, and doctoral students alike, and to many enjoyable and fruitful discussions during the workshop. Participants are expected to be present throughout the workshop and actively contribute to the discussions.
This year we look forward to receiving submissions that contribute to the following areas of interest:
