Abstract

The paper unpacks the “black box” of informal institutions and theorize about the role of informal networks in channeling continuity and change in informal institutions. Specifically, we argue that when informal institutions are enacted by informal networks that are “relatively affective” and “relatively closed,” their persistence is higher than the persistence of informal institutions that are enacted by “relatively open” and “relatively instrumental” networks.
