Institutions and institutional reform in the Spanish water sector: a historical perspective
Áreas de investigación
  • Política agraria
In modern institutional economics, institutions have a much broader context that mere organizations or administration agencies. Institutions in this ample vision are defined as a set of rules and property rights that govern the behavior of individuals and determine their actions in such a way that these actions affect not only those individuals but also other members of society (Ostrom, 1992; Eggertsson, 1990; Bromley, 1989). In this context, water institutions are conceived as an integrated system that includes the legal framework (water law), the policy regime (water policy) and the administrative or organizational arrangements (water administration). All these elements operate interactively and cannot exist independently from one another. Water organizations have the precise task of executing, implementing and enforcing the legal and policy provisions (Saleth &Dinar 2004).
