This chapter reviews the book’s major arguments and discusses the study’s implications for understanding multi-institutional fields (in general) and the future of the organic foods sector (in particular). Four arguments regarding multi-institutional fields are advanced: (1) scholars should examine moral and emotional, as well as cognitive, aspects of logics, (2) multi-institutional fields encourage reflexive creativity, (3) identifying social mechanisms will increase knowledge about how conflict emerges (or fails to emerge) in multi-institutional fields, and (4) consumers may play a minor role in guiding the development of ethical markets. Regarding the organic sector’s future, the chapter argues that the expansionary logic’s dominance has yielded important gains, but that attention should be paid to revitalizing democratic arrangements and practices.

Keywords:   institutional logics, multi-institutional fields, emotions, moral logics, creativity, mechanisms, framing, organizations, organic farming, food democracy
