They characterize drift and conversion as strategies through which actors can quietly promote significant changes in political outcomes and whose effects emerge only slowly beneath the veneer of apparent institutional stability.

Real-world puzzles may also be formulated when particular cases do not conform to expectations from existing theory or large-N research. For example, Atul Kohli and collaborators (2001) explore why India is a longstanding democracy despite being poor, ethnically diverse, and regionally divided. Most CHA research is thus defined by certain scope conditions that delineate the range of cases to which the theory applies. , the specific configuration of variables) within which the researcher believes his or her argument will be valid.
Such studies are of value for program evaluation purposes, in this case, for example, underscoring the resilience of local institutions in the face of third-party interventions. However, from a more process-sensitive perspective, the observed outcomes are predictable. When institutions are introduced (treatment style) into a new context, they are unlikely to produce an impact precisely because what also matters is the process through which these institutions themselves emerge. , Druckman and Leeper 2012).
