Overall research focus is the transformation and ordering of political institutions
Transformation is understood as institutional adaptation. Ordering is understood as governance of societal institutions. Political refers to the authoritative and administrative allocation of values. Institutions are understood broadly as formal & informal legality, norms, mental models, logics, and political ideas.
The scope of the group is
The debates and research of the group will continuously aim to explore the definitions, nature and construction as well as the limits of political institutions, in the light of well-known institutional theories, such as formal-legal institutionalism, rational choice institutionalism, historical institutionalism and sociological institutionalism, and later contributions such as discursive institutionalism, institutional logics and hybrid institutional formations. The group will also explore socio-legal theories and analyses. The research and debates of the group will also continuously consider institution-actor relations, such the roles and influence of professional political actors or state-citizenship relations. The research and debates of the group will also continuously include the important questions of democracy, legitimacy, accountability and transparency in the public control of political institutions. Furthermore, and not least, the group will continuously debate different forms of power and authority, both direct/indirect, formal/informal, resource/structural/discursive that can be attributed to the transformation and ordering of political institutions.
