18th New Institutionalism Workshop in Toruń

The annual New Institutionalism Workshop (NIW) after more than 18 years has achieved the status of a welcoming and vibrant academic event. Scholars from different disciplines, countries, and even academic traditions have come each year to develop theoretical and empirical frontiers of institutional research.

In 2023 we invite you to participate in the 18th Workshop that will take place in Toruń, Poland at Nicolaus Copernicus University.

The keynote speaker of 2023 Workshop will be prof. Roy Suddaby who is the Winspear Chair of Management at the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria, Canada, Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Carson College of Business at Washington State University, USA and Professor of Organization Theory at the Liverpool University Management School at the University of Liverpool, UK.  


We encourage work that brings forward novel topics, employs innovative metho­dology, and/or advances fresh perspectives of inquiry. Approaches that drift away from present mainstream themes will enhance and develop our understanding of institutions and institutional phenomena. We are especially keen to hear voices from literature that does not belong to the standard reference list of institutional theory, and/or to learn about scholarly endeavors that draw on work not available in English. Also, in line with the new institutionalism network’s spirit, the workshop encourages collaboration, particularly among scholars drawing on or bridging different disciplines.

We look forward to receiving submissions by experienced academics, young scholars, and doctoral students alike, and to many enjoyable and fruitful discussions during the workshop. Participants are expected to be present throughout the workshop and actively contribute to the discussions. 

Submission of short papers starts October 1st.
