Of institutional theory Insittutional analysis—the institutional logics perspective (Thornton, Ocasio & Lounsbury ). While institutional logics research is developing in sociology and organization and theory, we will argue that it is a useful framework for other academic fields in the social sciences such as political science (Albrekt, ), economics (Ellerman, ), information .
