    Posted 5 days ago

    In the face of multiple societal crises, ranging from the decline of professions to the clash of states, how can organizations govern and remake institutional orders? Please come and join us for a presenter symposium "Governance of Institutions: Logics and Orders as Phenomena"! On Monday August 8, 2:45PM–4:15PM PT @The Westin Seattle in Cascade I-A. 


    In this symposium (sponsored by OMT/STR/SIM), we gather five exciting presentations that explore the governance of institutions-their logics and orders. Together, they illuminate important, yet under-examined, questions: What governance mechanisms do organizations adopt to maintain different institutions? How does the governance of one institutional order reshape other institutions? How does the failed governance of one institutional order affect the stability of other institutions? Why do institutional carriers that are supposed to govern an institutional logic work against it? The papers cover diverse contexts, ranging from refugee crises in Jordan and anti-government protests in the Arab world to social innovation in the U.S. and cross-border professional work globally.
