In this paper we address the problem of how the autonomy of agents in an organization can be enhanced by means of contracts. Contracts are modelled as legal institutions: systems of legal rules which allow to change the regulative and constitutive norms of an organization. The methodology we use is to attribute to organizations mental attitudes, beliefs, desires and goals, and to take into account their behavior by using recursive modelling.

Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of how the autonomy of agents in an organization can be enhanced by means of contracts. Contracts are modelled as legal institutions: systems of legal rules which allow to change the regulative and constitutive norms of an organization. The methodology we use is to attribute to organizations mental attitudes, beliefs, desires and goals, and to take into account their behavior by using recursive modelling.
