Abstract

This paper analyzes institutionalism’s contributions to development theory, and shows the need for a greater integration for the creation of successful institutional development strategies. It identifies the levels of institutional analysis, highlighting its frequency of change, type of institution and function performed. It also examines the contributions of rational and social choice institutionalism, organization theory, historical institutionalism and sociological institutionalism. Finally, it emphasizes the importance for complementarities between schools for the challenges faced by development policies.
