Abstract

When Paul Sabatier asked me to do an assessment of institutional rational choice, I responded that the field was too big for one person to do an assessment of all the work that might be covered by the term. Instead of trying an assessment of such a broad array of literature, I focus more specifically on the institutional analysis and development (IAD) framework that has evolved out of the work of many colleagues at the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University. Undertaking an overview and assessment of the IAD framework proves to be quite a challenge in 2006 given all of the attention paid to it in recent years.
