agents without the need for these agents to internalise the
norms of the system. Current formalisms can be divided
in two groups depending on whether norms are expressed
on the state of the normative structure or the events that
bring about normative change. This paper argues that for
complex systems both types are needed.
To this extend, we introduce ESI, a formal model for institutions
incorporating the concepts for both event- and
state-based normative modelling. We demonstrate our approach
with a simplied legal case-study.
