    Abstract

    This chapter discusses the empirical value of looking at planning practice through institution/pragmatism lenses. The notion of institutions that provide actors with a logic of appropriateness and ideas about planning as a communicative practice set the stage for an analysis of the use of environmental norms in Dutch planning practice. On the basis of three cases it appears that several ways exist of bridging the tensions between the institutional and pragmatist perspective.
