Ritchie examines the development of institutions in women’s enterprises in Afghanistan through the lens of a critical social institution: women’s purdah. Manifested by segregation, seclusion, modesty, and coveredness, the traditional Islamic practice of purdah determines the limited scope of women’s mobility and social interactions. In the transformation of purdah and subsequent formulation of enterprise institutions, the research indicates that the interaction of diverse actors can influence both the process and nature of emerging rules, including degrees of openness and flexibility.

In order to clarify the concept, it is necessary to analyse it in concrete cases and situations, and to incorporate into the debate not only the traditional views that emerged from political science and economic studies, but also other approaches coming from institutional and organisational theory. Specifically, I consider that institutional theory approaches based on sociological points of view that are centred on the concepts of legitimacy and institutional change should be considered. In this chapter, I critically examine the concepts of governance and development and suggest that the institutional approach to organisations and social change can provide useful insights into this debate, particularly Governance and Development 21 related to the understanding of how to increase the legitimacy of organisations (Suchman 1995) in the decision-making process.

To create and maintain specific institutional environments, the management of legitimacy by the organisations involved is critical, as is understanding the roles and actions that agents play in relation to maintaining specific and particular institutional rules. A very interesting, yet little researched, topic in this respect deals with the maintenance of institutions of a specific social order, despite the fact that they exclude groups and reinforce unequal access to resources and power in the decision-making process.
