Abstract

The origins and key debates regarding institutional ethnography (IE) are briefly outlined. Key questions regarding what is IE and how can it be better critically understood and applied are addressed, before a summary of each contributing chapter is summarized. IE is relevant and has a growing following, yet its distinct ontological, epistemological, methodological, and theoretical nature must be acknowledged and appropriately grounded within firm historical roots in order to clearly interrogate its contemporary developments.
