Institutional Theory and Varieties of National Financial Systems

  • Caner Bakir
Part of the Palgrave Macmillan Studies in Banking and Financial Institutions book series (SBFI)


The aim of this book is to examine how and why multiple structures, institutions and agents interact in informing bank behaviour and financial system resilience, and institutional change and persistence. To that end, the SIA framework and typological theory of bank behaviour have been developed to carry out the analysis and were introduced in Chapter 1. They emerge from an inductive research and benefit from institutional theory and public policy literature that deal with institutional and policy change processes. In this regard, this book also takes an important step toward building bridges among these academic fields. Thus, it is important to locate this book in the broader literature about the variants of institutional analysis and in the literature of comparative public policy and political economy of national financial systems which utilise an institutional analysis.
