Militer pour le statu quo. Le Comité permanent amiante ou l'imposition réussie d'un consensus

Abstract : This article analyses the ways in which organizations manage create consensus between actors with diverging interests and objectives by reinforcing an internal equilibrium which may go against the interests of some of its members. The study of the “Comité permanent amiante” (permanent committee on asbestos), a group created by industry to promote the “safe use of asbestos”, highlights some of these mechanisms and their effects. The enrolement of actors such as representatives of trade-union organizations, can be mainly explained by the multiplicity of goals defended by the institution and the different hierarchical orderings of these objectives within the multiple internal arenas. Nonetheless, these mechanisms function only insofar as they reinforce of social logics in which this organization is embedded and depend on the place of industry in occupational risk management.
