This paper makes a theoretical contribution to the IMP tradition by revisiting the relationshipbetween institutionalism and the ?markets-as-networks? approach. In particular, the diversity ofinstitutional thought is reviewed and different strands of institutional thought identified. It isargued that an engagement with these broader institutional traditions has the potential tocontribute to theory development in IMP.
