Samenvatting

(International) food security policies often have little effect due the lack of context sensitive approaches. This inability to make policies fit to local contexts demonstrates our limited understanding of the actual processes affecting food security policies. What is not well understood yet? The effect of institutions on the outcome of development aid in general, and on food security especially. Formal and informal institutions are dynamical entities which constantly react to their environment, which includes both local and global variables. Development aid interventions additionally influence existing institutions, but to what extent is not well known. These cross-scale dynamics are difficult to capture. Therefore, renewing is the approach is the attempt of framing these dynamics by applying organizational theories to food security issue; it thus contributes to the further development of understanding these effects
