Theory of Institutional Change

  • Hanna Samir Kassab
  • Jonathan D. Rosen


This chapter provides the book with a theoretical framework applied to cases. It explores contemporary conceptualizations of fragility, corruption, and institution building. Building on previously established literature, the chapter explores why domestic institutions matter to international stability, as corruption tends to spread from weaker states to regional locations.
