Example text

Both interpretations place the attribute at the focal point of the institutional statement but in different references to the aim, that is, the agent or the object of the action. We see this as one of the biggest challenges in future applications of the syntax. How does one determine the subset of actors in the attribute? The purpose of the attribute is to define the subset of actors to whom or to what the institutional statement applies. At times, this subset of actors might include a subgroup of individuals or a sub-subgroup of individuals.

We know of only two other efforts— none of them empirical studies—toward operationalizing Crawford and Ostrom’s grammar (Schluter and Theesfeld 2008; Smajgl, Izquierdo, and Huigen 2008). However, other institutional scholars outside of the IAD tradition have recognized the value of the grammar to identify between rules, norms, and strategies (Vatn 2005, 68). Second, this article provides guidelines for identifying institutional statements in legislation. To date, IAD researchers have focused broadly on an action arena using evaluative criteria to assess interactions among actors and on the institutional incentives guiding their interactions that result in observable outcomes.

Thus, coders often disagreed about which specific organization a unit referred to or whether the unit should be coded as its default, implicit all. Second, attributes were difficult to code when there was a wide range of possible attributes with blurred boundaries and unclear roles. For example, the attributes in the abortion bill were relatively few actors with clear boundaries and roles, such as minors seeking abortion and physicians. In the transportation bill, the attributes included organizations with overlapping and unclear roles, such as state governments, the Secretary of the Department of Transportation, the MPOs, and Congress.
