Abstrakt

We build on the concept of “constellations of logics” (Goodrick & Reay, 2011) to further our understanding of the relationship between institutional logics and action. We do so through a comparative case study of similar primary health care initiatives in Denmark and Canada. We draw on micro- and macro-level data to show how both the arrangement and relationship among logics impacted the design and accomplishment of the initiatives in each country. Based on our data, we theorize five different mechanisms through which logics can simultaneously constrain and enable action.
