Based on the analysis of research papers, the authors present the systematization of the ‘sharing economy’ institutions existing in various countries of the world. In the article the identified institutions are divided into cognitive, supportive, and regulatory ones. It is shown that the object of study in these research papers includes both factors that characterize informal institutions, such as trust, reputation and various socio-psychological characteristics of user behavior – and formal ones, including labour and tax legislation, as well as regulation at the city level. To identify gaps in institutional support, the identified norms and rules are distributed according to the levels of their occurrence.
