Based Rehabilitation Project in Thailand

Sarawoot Intapanom1, Pichai Rattanadilok Na Bhuket2


This research explains institutional logics under Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) project based on the theory of institutional logics perspective that influences the practices of those involved with the CBR. Those logics are interrelated and affect the operations of the CBR project. This study is done using the qualitative research methodology. Research data collected from relevant documents, research, and in-depth interviews with 18 people involved with the CBR project. These data were analyzed and discussed according to the institutional logics perspective framework. The results show that the CBR project is influenced by six institutional logics; state logic, professional logic, community logic, family logic, market logic and religion logic. Further results show that, the CBR project is a project with a variety of perspectives, beliefs and norms that lead to different approaches and behaviors through actors. Six of those institutional logics have relationships in three forms: consistent relationships, conflict relationships and competition among institutional logics. The variety of institutional logics and three types of relationships do not make the CBR project as a hybrid organization that may flexibly respond to the environment, but rather it reinforces the norm of strict state control contrary to fully participation of the community organization under community logic, in accordance with the CBR principles.
