Practices As Institutional Fractals: Zooming in on Fika, Zooming Out to Lagom

This paper studies Swedish coffee drinking ritual, fika, to understand institutional maintenance by looking beyond micro-level practices to examine the role of broader level institutional arrangements. The study identifies how fika is supported by other practices that display self-similarity regardless of scale—fractals—that altogether refract a common societal-level value.
