Change has always been an issue for studies in politics and economics. However, there are few systematic treatments of institutions. This paper exemplifies how institutions (i.e., rules, norms and conventions) relate to the time-geography concepts of constraints, which affect different agents, policy-making, as well as economic performance.This paper seeks to advance the current discussion and sets some groundwork for further elaboration on economic and political change from an ontological perspective based in time-geography. It offers an initial exploration of the analysis of institutional change by a conceptualization of constraints in time-geography.The contribution of this study lies in the fact that insights from a time-geography approach have the ability to make the evolutionary perspective more coherent in empirically-related works when grading and ordering institutions of relevance concerning economic and political evolvement.
