A cybernetic perspective on governance. Consequences on the evaluation of territorial action.

Abstract : The study is based on the determination of some relationships between the social fact and the governance institution, as a specific type of organization. The following definition is proposed for the social fact: the social fact is a social action transformed at the individual level into individual information that has the role of stage function for the operating social system and is based on a social information transformed at the individual level into individual information that has the role of stage function for the emitting social system (Pascaru, 1987). The organizations are defined as: human ensembles formalized and organized as hierarchies in view of assuring the cooperation and coordination of their members for the realization of some given goals. In the multitude of organizations that can be identified in the social field, the author has in view the territorial organizations (administrations especially). At this level (administration) some investigations on information and participation of the inhabitants of a commune (Horea, Alba County, Romania) were conducted. Some of the results of these investigations are also displayed. Then it is taken into consideration the social fact at the governance level and the consequences of the cybernetic perspective on the evaluation of territorial actions as a key moment in the act of governing itself.
