Abstract:This thesis focuses on the historical development process of the European Students‟ Union with regard to its institutionalization since 1991. It investigates the changes in the set-up of the organization systematically since its foundation in 1982, but putting a strong emphasis on the Bologna Process beginning in 1998. The development is analyzed with a model depicting the influence from both the institutional environment and the organizational field in higher education. The results show that the ESU was subject to transformative powers within its environment which offered opportunities to institutionalize. While the ESU was formalized only to a limited extent with few political powers at its beginning, it has developed into a highly institutionalized actor having significant influence on higher education policy-making.
