The Incorporation of Concept and Context

  • Jan Sammeck


In order to integrate contextual knowledge with theory, the following chapter presents three case studies of self-regulation regimes. 250 Contextual knowledge refers to information about the type of incentives prevailing in the industry in question. By interpreting it with the theory developed here, it explains why certain incentives lead to certain actions of firms, and how this influences the design of rules in a self-regulation regime. Consequently, the method in which these cases are developed follows the logic of providing examples for how contextual knowledge should be interpreted by the proposed concept.
