Institutionalism 

A theory which presumes that structure determines behaviour: institutions create greater regularity in human behaviour than would otherwise be found.

(B. Guy Peters. 1999. Institutional Theory in Political Science: The New Institutionalism. London and New York: Pinter Publishers. Ch. 9, p.141)
