    Dear colleagues,

    I am delighted to announce the launch of the World Institutional Systems Repository (WISR).

    WISR is for scholars interested in the state of the art in institutional systems research (e.g., Varieties of Capitalism, National Business Systems). Research on the topic has been fragmented across research streams and disciplines, which makes it hard to stay on top of developments. The objective of WISR is to help address this problem.

    WISR on launch provides 2 types of contents:
    • a recommended reading list of cutting-edge research contributed by Peter A. Hall (of Hall & Soskice), and 
    • a summary of typologies of institutional systems in the literature.
    Both are regularly updated, and new categories of contents will be added over time.

    WISR can be accessed here:

    I hope you will find the site useful.

    All the best,
