Introduction
I am interested in the transformations of capitalism and its implications on our lives, especially in extreme context. In particular I look at how people resist, find alternatives, and challenge the ethics behind neoliberalism. My work has examined dynamics in the workplace, in the household, but also in communities. It is mainly qualitative. I am interested in gender, resistance, oppression, power and domination, post-colonialism, solidarity, space, emotions, and ethics.

Most studies on the links between secrecy and creativity have focused on individual sources of creativity and the impact of organizational management on creative initiatives. However, because of their very focus on individual practices of concealment and personal creative capacities, they have paid scant attention to collective interactions occurri...

Secrecy and ethics are often seen as opposing forces within organizations. Secret work is viewed as unethical, as it excludes others from knowing and is associated with self-interested behavior. We contend that this view does not account for the dynamic inherent to secrecy and to the fact that ethics is embedded in social relations. This paper sugg...

L’innovation sociale au sein des populations fragilisées dans l’économie globalisée pose un problème théorique dans le cadre néo-institutionnaliste car la création de solutions nouvelles aux problèmes sociaux nécessite d’avoir la capacité de remettre en cause l’ordre établi. L’étude du cas de l’intervention de missionnaires catholiques dans un quar...

Durkheim’s contributions to organization studies have so far been decidedly marginal, and largely concentrated on culture. In this paper, we draw upon his theory of anomie and solidarity to show how a Durkheimian view of contemporary organizations and work has special relevance today for debates about how workers, particularly middle managers, can...

Dans quelle mesure l’innovation concerne-telle l’ensemble des salariés et pas seulement la recherche-développement ou un supposé génie entrepreneurial ? Que révèle-t-elle de leur travail et des tensions entre un salariat de la recherche et l’activité productive, entre exploration et exploitation ? L’innovation se limite-t-elle au transfert de la re...

Article
Recent studies in sociology and in process theory on inter-organizational collaborations showed the embeddedness of alliances in inter-personal contacts. While this approach has shed light on the importance of the inter-personal level to understand inter-organizational choices, it fails to explain how individuals succeed in translating their person...

Intersectoral cooperation is increasingly perceived as important to regional renewal. Yet, studies of local cooperation generally show that few ties exist among actors from different sectors. However, we know little about the mechanisms behind this lack, which exists despite efforts by policy makers and, sometimes, despite the desires of upper-leve...

Industrial clusters have long been of interest to policy makers, as they are believed to induce economic development. When they are set up in globalizing cities with different and competing skill sets, selecting an industry to promote becomes a major issue. This article focuses on power in global cities to examine the implementation of a high-techn...
Thesis
Depuis les années 1990, de nombreux travaux ont été consacrés à la question de la performance des nouvelles formes « d’organisation en réseau » dans l’industrie ; cependant, peu d’études examinent les mécanismes d’émergence et de reproduction des réseaux inter-organisationnels (Powell et Smith-Doerr 2005, Provan et Sydow 2008). Dans cette optique,...
