Abstract

This paper aims at analyzing the relationship between institutional evaluation and the theory of governance, taking into account the existence of a knowledge movement, institutional development, and the assurance of government sustainability; namely, institutionalism as a discussion center of governance will affect the long-term economic development of States. For this, contributions of economic institutionalism and its connection with the theory of governance, through a historical inquiry with the most outstanding contributions of this movement, are presented.
