The New Institutionalism incorporates several approaches of institutional analysis from several social sciences. Among these approaches, the New Institutional Economics has propelled several advances in contemporaneous institutional analysis. Methodological pluralism has characterized this approach, and the use of case studies, institutional and comparative historical analysis, econometric applications and experimental analysis explains the empirical success of the New Institutional Economics.
