This double volume presents a collection of 23 papers on how institutions matter to socio-economic life. The effort was seeded by the 2015 Alberta Institutions Conference, which brought together 108 participants from 14 countries and 51 different institutions. The resulting papers delve deeply into the practical impact an institutional approach enables, as well as how such research has the potential to influence policies relevant to critical institutional changes unfolding in the world today. In Volume 48A, the focus is on the micro foundations of institutional impacts. In Volume 48B, the focus is on the macro consequences of institutional arrangements. Looking across the two volumes, there are multiple theoretical, conceptual, methodological and practical points of convergence and divergence. Overall, the volumes highlight the many ways in which institutional processes and institutional researchers can contribute to our understanding of the micro foundations and macro consequences of institutions and their impacts on a wide variety of globally pressing issues, while also identifying a variety of fruitful directions for knowledge accumulation and development.

Management, business, and other scholars from the US, Korea, Europe, Canada, and Israel provide 11 essays based on papers given at the Fourth Triennial Alberta Institutions Conference, held in June 2015 in Banff, Canada, on how institutions matter to socio-economic life, focusing on the micro foundations of institutional impacts in this volume (a second volume focuses on the macro consequences of institutional arrangements). They examine how institutional logics shape individual action; how they relate to frame construction in the emergence of an economic democracy; how institutions get materialized in space, in the context of Jerusalem's Western Wall; a bottom-up approach to institutional logics; practice variation in finance organizations for social impact; domestic tradition as a source of institutional practices and everyday living; the role of denial and emotions in institutional stability and change; rigid environments consisting of established cultures with barriers to change; the impact of temporal structures in institutions; institutional contradictions in political party discourses on education and accountability policy; and how institutionalists matter.
