20 September 2016 Institutional vs Grass Roots social change Social artifacts — constrain social behavior informal vs formal (socks w/ sandals vs laws & regulations) focus on a class of organizations (banking, government, business, education, etc) Ideally, they are economically efficient Constrain behavior to minimize interactional costs cursing in public —> cost = social isolation robbing bank —> cost = jail time if caught Institutional change: continuous change incremental, not massive paradigm shifts response in shifts of market or market interactions or market needs ex. gun “reform”, minimum wage increase, etc discontinuous change radical shifts in formal rules usually results in war, resolution, environmental disaster ex. American Revolution, WWII, rise of UN/World Bank/IMF What changes? Tech dimension — movement of information implication for social change, access to information, spillover effect from industry into public space (ex. e-mail was once only used for business, now students and civilians use it frequently) Economic dimension — organization networks within ex. shift from hierarchy (where position determines salary) to performance pay implication for social change: diffusion of power, can be reflected in other arenas Political dimension — stakeholder, change in the way policy is developed Implications for social change and how social actors impact economic factors/outcomes ex. shift to collaborative policy Grass roots: most basic level of activity or organization uses people in a given disprove as the basis for a political or economic movement. Can be a response to institutional failures an effort to address treats impacting a community not separate from state — often given resources from state examples: La Viva Campesina: farmers, peasants, indigenous population —> 3 countries fighting corporate agribusiness Civil Rights Movement: didn’t see government or educational institutions jumping in KKK, BLM, Hippie Movement, Gay Rights Movement, etc. the process strategy + leadership capacity + communications —> inventory resources. Identify barriers, Communicate message. accountability/power & social norms change social/policy change —> institutional change 22 September 2016 Technical Adoption/diffusion Continually innovating Spillover — > use by other industry and civil society (unless patented) Economic Efficiency Implications for value and innovation Leveling the playing field through performance based pay performance based pay allows for less people within an organization while maximizing efficiency Limiting how many people information must be passed through; flexibility Political Collaboration Implications for policy Stakeholder input much more valued Bidirectional relationship of communication between industries and stakeholders
