Legitimacy and ambiguity: institutional logics and their outcome for people with intellectual disabilities

Abstract [en]

Organisations providing services for people with intellectual disabilities operate within a context of legal, moral, and institutional frameworks. This article uses an institutional framework to analyse two types of welfare organisations for people with intellectual disabilities in Sweden: inclusive education and disability arts. These two empirical cases show that because disability organisations operate at the intersection of different institutional spheres, their aims and activities are subjected to differing, and at times conflicting, expectations. Using an institutional framework helps to identify the influence of conflicting logics and external roles on the daily encounters that professionals have with people with intellectual disabilities. The findings raise ethical considerations about the moral status of people with intellectual disabilities in contemporary society.
