Large-Scale Institutional Change
This chapter explores the possibilities of evolutionary learning on a large-scale by examining macro-institutional change. The chapter conceives of large-scale institutional change as a constitutional process and treats “meta-concepts” as the focal points of this change. Meta-concepts become a platform for institutional evolution when they are multi-vocal and teleological “boundary objects.” The institutionalization of the concept of “sustainable development” illustrates the power and limits of meta-concepts.
