Renate E. Meyer

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, ‘A Processual View on Institutions: A Note from a Phenomenological Institutional Perspective’, Renate E. Meyer argues that institutions and processes are inextricably intertwined phenomena. She maintains that separating them impoverishes both theoretical traditions. Renate E. Mayer elaborates this argument from a phenomenological institutionalist perspective, highlighting in particular the action-based and type-based definition and the collective and expressive character of institutions. As well as this, Mayer points to the strongly processual notion of a phenomenological perspective. She concludes the chapter by arguing that such a perspective and its inherent fluidity can help to prevent the reification of institutions.
