Abstract [en]

The primary aim of this thesis is to understand and explain the organizational responses to the institutional pressures in LAC. By responding to these forces under this environment, organizations look for legitimacy.

The thesis depends on a qualitative research way by using secondary data. The findings were sent to eight experts to support the findings. The main result is that the networks are constituted depending on cultural and norms practices imposed over organizations for the purpose of making equilibrium with fluctuated institutional regulations. Coercive forces cannot be the source for legitimacy to organizations. By long experience between organizations within the network, normative characteristics appear in form of trust which emerges legitimacy.
