Political Science and the Three New Institutionalisms


Hall PA, Taylor RR. Political Science and the Three New Institutionalisms. Political Studies. 1996;XLIV :936-957.


The 'new institutionalism' is a term that now appears with growing frequency in political science. However, there is considerable confusion about just what the 'new institutionalism' is, how it differs from other approaches, and what sort of promise or problems it displays. The object of this essay is to provide some preliminary answers to these questions by reviewing recent work in a burgeoning literature.
