On which topic are you currently working?
The world around us is filled with meta-organizations: FIFA, MEDEF, trade unions federations, etc. Meta-organizations are organizations which members are themselves organizations. Two Swedish authors, Göran Ahrne and Nils Brunsson coined this concept of “meta-organization”, with its very specific meaning. They published a book on meta-organizations in 2008, which opened a whole new field of research, even though scholars in political science and sociology had studied meta-organizations before. The difference is that we can now investigate how companies use meta-organizations as a tool to collectively manage problems they are confronted to, such as those of social responsibility or sustainable development.

My first paper was published in Gérer et comprendre, a French management journal from Mines ParisTech. Written in French, you can find it here. It deals with the mechanisms and processes that turn an abstract idea such as Sustainable Development into operational devices. The paper focuses on the role of meta-organizations in this performativity chain.
