Institutions, théories du changement institutionnel et déterminant de la qualité des institutions: les enseignements de la littérature économique

No 2016-4, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: Given the lack of universally accepted definition of the word institution, studying the institutional change as well as the determinants of institutional quality remains a difficult and even perilous exercise. Therefore, this article aims to achieve a threefold objective. First, it proposes a definition of the term institution. Second, it reviews the extensive literature on the theories of institutional change. Third, it highlights the existent empirical literature on the determinants of institutional quality.
