Experimental spaces and institutional innovation: The interplay of distancing work and anchoring work.

Abstract : This paper explores the role of experimental spaces in processes of institutional innovation. Our case study is of the institutionalization of carbon markets in Europe, where dominant industrial actors built experimental spaces to alleviate the institutional pressures that constrained their ability to develop new solutions. We find that experimental spaces are the product of two forms of institutional work: distancing work and anchoring work. The interplay of distancing work and anchoring work generates specific conditions inside experimental spaces that catalyze the development and institutionalization of new solutions. We also highlight the pragmatic mechanisms of theorization held inside experimental spaces.
