This thesis integrates three independent research programs: a) the Austrian Economics, b) the Law and Economics and c) New Institutional Economics perspectives by introducing a conceptual model called institutional coordination, which is understood as a complex process of interaction between networks of formal and informal institutions (or rules of the games). The first aim of this thesis is to show how institutional coordination emerges from a market-oriented approach. The second aim is to describe how institutional coordination can be applied through the introduction of an alternative economic and sociological taxonomy represented via structured, transitional and unstructured civil societies.
