Our findings suggest that outsider-driven deinstitutionalization commences with “disruptive institutional work,” which, Lawrence and Suddaby argued, can have three aims: “undermining assumptions and beliefs” about practices; “disassociating moral foundations” from practices; and “disconnecting sanctions” from practices through changes in legal or professional regulations (2006: 235).
