    Institutional arenas may be regarded as the context in which actors ‘interact’ in policy processes (Ostrom et al. 1994). In this sense they shape the ‘playing field’ for political leaders, community actors and other participants. The institutional rules that set the arena both provide and restrict participants’ possibilities to interact. They provide the actors with a set of behavioural alternatives and thus shape (but do not determine) their actions.
