By adding more institutional structure to a model, the degree of freedom open to political actors is diminished and it may be easier to understand policy formation. This idea was a key insight of Shepsle and Weingast (1981) who discuss how restrictions of the structure of proposal power within a legislature can be used to generate a stable point in a multidimensional policy space.
