Sample text

Busch 1999: 36). Obviously, the importance of ideas in policy-making is well recognised in the literature. Scrutinising ideas analytically, two basic dimensions can be distinguished. : 23). Put differently, the concept of ideas as ‘knowledge includes both cognitive ideas about “what is the case”, and prescriptive, normative ideas about “what should be the case” and “what should be done”’ (Rueschemeyer and Skocpol 1996: 300). A large body of literature underlines the necessity for the new institutionalist approach to integrate ideas in order to provide direction to its analyses of the political behaviour of actors who engage in changing policies.

Thelen and Steinmo 1992: 12). Although the concern that the inclusiveness of institutions needs to be restricted is shared in order to maintain the explanatory utility of new institutionalism, it is here held that formal as well as informal institutions need to be considered in new institutionalist analysis. Both are essential for the overall institutional setting, providing the framework for political behaviour. However, to avoid conflating institution and agency, institutions should indeed be limited to the ‘rules of the game’.

Particularly in ‘unsettled times’, Katznelson (2003) puts forward, analyses need to scrutinise actors while still preserving an awareness of the constraints posed by the policy legacy. To underline the limits to the discretion of actors, he introduces the notion of ‘restricted agency’, which specifies, but is not intended to call into question, the significance of agency. In a similar vein, Clemens and Cook (1999: 459), as well as Crouch and Keune (2005: 99), argue that acknowledging heterogeneity and multiple choices in institutional settings constitutes an opportunity for agency; particularly ‘political leadership’, as a driving force for change (Sikkink 1991: 27).
