  1. Dick W. P. Ruiter (2004). Types of Institutions as Patterns of Regulated Behaviour. Res Publica 10 (3):207-231.
    Nowadays, neo-institutionalistic approaches are prominent in economics, political science, the science of public administration and sociology. There is a general complaint about the vagueness of the concept of institutions and the apparent disparity of phenomena falling under it. This article shows how institutional legal theory provides a typology of institutions as sets of rules and corresponding patterns of regulated behaviour that can help to avert much confusion. The typologys usefulness is tested by applying it to an array of private governance (...)

  3. Dick W. P. Ruiter (1998). Structuring Legal Institutions. Law and Philosophy 17 (3):215 - 232.
    The article is concerned with the question of how legal institutions are structured with the use of constitutive, institutive, consequential, and terminative rules.

  5. Dick W. P. Ruiter (1997). Legal Validity Qua Specific Mode of Existence. Law and Philosophy 16 (5):479 - 505.
    The author investigates how the conception of legal validity as a specific mode of existence, adopted by Kelsen in Allgemeine Theorie der Normen (General Theory of Norms), can be reconciled with a conception of the legal system in which conflicts of legal norms remain of logical concern. To this end he makes use of Ludwig Wittgenstein's picture theory of the proposition as set out in the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. The conclusion is that in order to reconcile the two conceptions, the legal (...)
