The neo-institutionalist methodological approach in the field of political science, economics, organisational behaviour, and sociology explores how institutional structures, rules, norms, and cultures constrain the choices and actions of individuals when they are part of a political institution. Neo-institutionalism combines the interests of traditional institutionalist scholars, who focused on studying formal institutional rules and structures, with behaviourist scholars. These scholars examined the actions of individual political actors, stressing the relevance of institutional analysis to better comprehend the behaviour of individual political actors (J. T. Ishiyama, 2018). Typical neo-institutionalist research topics include principal-agent problems and mechanisms of collective decision-making.
