Discursive Institutionalism Presentation for Norwegian University Consortium


On March 8, 2021, I gave a presentation entitled “Discursive Institutionalism:  Analyzing the Power of Ideas and Discourse in Institutional Context” for a research seminar series on Law, Democracy and Welfare (RDV) hosted by a university consortium in the West of Norway.

The seminar series is based on a collaboration between the Research Group Law, Democracy and Welfare at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, the Center for Research on Discretion and Paternalism at the Department of Administration and Organization Theory at the University of Bergen, and the Center for Law and Social Transformation at the University of Bergen. The seminar series’ field of interest is located at the interplay between law, welfare, and democracy, with a focus both on the effects different legal constructions have on the liberty and social and political participation of vulnerable groups and on of welfare services practice and decision-making.
