Similarly to institutions in human societies, Electronic Institutions (EI) provide structured frameworks for Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) to regulate agents' interactions. However, current EIs cannot regulate a previously existing dynamic social system and deal with its agent population behaviour changes.
