Following their argument a variety of neo-institutionalist theories revived the study of institutions in political science in general and in IR, by adding new perspectives such as the various logics (of appropriateness or consequentiality) that guide decision making within organizations, the concept of path dependency (in historical institutionalism) and the principal–agent relationship (in rational choice institutionalism). March and Olsen (1989: 160) believed that politics is organized by a logic of appropriateness, with institutions defi ning ‘appropriate’ actions in terms of relations between roles that are being fulfi lled and the obligations of those roles in particular situations, whereas behaviour in a logic of consequentiality is driven by preferences and expectations about consequences.

In their article about the institutional dynamics of international political orders in International Organization, March and Olsen (1998: 954–5) showed that realist-dominated IR had paid more attention to the logic of consequentiality and related ‘efficient’ histories (focusing on competition for survival) than to the logic of appropriateness and related ‘inefficient’ histories, emphasizing the slow pace of historical adaptation and portraying the match between political institutions and their environments as ‘less automatic, less continuous, and less precise than [is shown by] a view of history as efficient’.

Hawkins et al. (2006: 342–3) found that some measure of agent autonomy is a prerequisite for enabling states to enhance their credibility, lock in favoured policies, overcome collective decision-making problems, or resolve disputes through delegation. They also found that IOs possess varying autonomy and potential for agency slack. Autonomy was relatively low in multilateral development banks, but higher in international courts and dispute resolution bodies. When IOs slack, member-states periodically attempt to improve oversight of and performance by their agents.
