Provides an overview of institutional analysis, which comprises all questions in political science. Discusses issues in political theory and the normative role of institutions, and traces the decline and re‐emergence of institutions in political science. Reviews methodological and theoretical issues in institutional analysis, such as the ontology of institutions, agency and causation, their stability, and change. The future of institutional political science is in the combination of knowledge and whether it can be applied to normative institutional goals.

Keywords:   institutional analysis, institutional goals, institutions, norms, political science
