Globalization and Path-Dependent Institutional Change 31 Macro-level Processes At the macro level, the central state guides the process of globalization in two ways: by joining international economic organizations and treaty organizations; and by establishing a regulatory environment through laws and policies.

56 Although international pressure to adopt particular institutional designs can spur domestic institutional change, considerations of domestic legitimacy often trump international concerns because leaders recognize the importance of domestic political support. The potential contradictory pressure from international organizations seeking to diffuse international norms and domestic forces opposed to radical institutional change underscores the mediating role played by state agents in the process of pushing through reforms, opposing institutional change, and/or selectively adopting new models.

Moreover, MNCs and foreign states may provide information on, and pressure host states to reform institutions along the lines of, their home-country practices because these are familiar to them. A focus on macro-level processes leaves open the specific direction of institutional change, and current theories offer little help in addressing such a matter. Micro-level Processes At the micro level, domestic and foreign firms are the main actors, but average citizens in the labor market also contribute to institutional change.
