Zusammenfassung

Als gemeinsamer Kern aller wirtschafts- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Definitionen des Institutionenbegriffs werden Institutionen als formelle und informelle Regeln verstanden, die ökonomisches und politisches Handeln strukturieren, das heißt, begrenzen und ermöglichen. In der Analyse von Politik und Ökonomie lassen sich verschiedene Varianten des Institutionalismus voneinander unterscheiden. Dieser Beitrag diskutiert die epistemologischen und ontologischen Besonderheiten des Soziologischen Institutionalismus, des Historischen Institutionalismus und des Behavioralen Institutionalismus. Diese Gegenüberstellung wird dabei anhand der folgenden Fragen strukturiert: Wie werden Institutionen definiert? Wie und warum entstehen Institutionen? Wie wirken Institutionen auf Akteure, Interaktionen sowie politische und ökonomische Entscheidungen? Wie und warum wandeln sich Institutionen? Der Beitrag zeigt, dass die verschiedenen Institutionalismen diese vier Fragen in der empirischen Analyse politischen und ökonomischen Handelns auf jeweils spezifische Weise beantworten. Die jeweilige selektive Vorgehensweise erweist sich als nützlich und notwendig, um den Wandel von Politischen Ökonomien in seiner Gesamtheit verstehen und erklären zu können. Mit anderen Worten: Die unterschiedlichen Institutionalismen stehen nicht notwendig in einem Konkurrenzverhältnis zueinander, sondern können sich ergänzen.
