Asger Sams Granerud, Jens Arne Andersen, Iben Rønholt & Thomas Falke Mortensen

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


By use of institutional theory on EU policy-making supplemented with perspectives of resource dependence, the features of the MacSharry reform process containing an unexpected change is explored. Further, the derived consequences for the IO is analyzed by use of theories of organizational institutionalization, concluding that the institutionalization of routines and procedures inhibited the capabilities of the organization to cope with new and unexpected problems in its environment.
