Title: TRANSFORMING BUREAUCRACY: CONDITIONAL NORMS AND THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARDIZATION OF STATISTICS IN RUSSIA
 
Author: Yoshiko M. Herrera
 
Description: This article analyzes variation in the implementation of international institutions and bureaucratic reform, using the case of the rapid and radical institutional reform of Russian economic statistics in the early 1990s. Three theoretical approaches are tested: political actors and interests; efficiency and material incentives; and constructivist approaches to identities and norms. And, a novel theoretical concept, conditional norms, in proposed. With conditional norms, changes in conditions, rather than changes in norms or identities per se, are the source of interest in institutional change. The analysis is based on a cross-national quantitative analysis and a case study based on extensive fieldwork.
