Institutionalized actors from events - the contribution of systems theory
This paper proposes to radicalize the search for the microfoundations of institutions by analyzing the formation of inistitutionalized
actors from events. It introduces concepts from systems theory that allow for reconstructing actors. In addition, it proposes two
mechanisms of actor formation: identification and categorization.
