WINIR members from any discipline are invited to use this website to promote their work and gain visibility in the growing community of institutional researchers around the world.

Books (monographs or edited volumes) devoted to the study of the nature, function, evolution, and impact of the institutions and organisations of economic and social life, are welcome, as are books devoted to institutional analysis and institutional thought. Only books (or new editions) published since 2011 or forthcoming books will be added.
