De la coopération à l’organisation territoriale émergente : à la jonction des situations, des espaces, et des activités

Abstract : At the crossroads of reflections on inter-organizational cooperation and territories, this HDR research essay deals with the issue of cooperation on a shared territory, between multiple actors, and around issues of societal interest. On the basis of research on such cooperation in various situations (protection of a water aquifer, management of urban incivilities in neighborhoods, services for the frail elderly, help in finding jobs for young graduates, etc.), the analysis characterizes the emergent process of cooperation, highlighting framing processes, the role of a central actor, the influence of the territory as a social construct, and the use of different territorial levels. The analysis also shows that the territories which are at the basis of this cooperation leads to the appearance of original and adapted organized constructs. These organizations, named “territorial” and “emergent”, are characterized by their different links to the shared territories. The notions of situation, space, and activity are then used to study the forms taken by these organized constructs, in their global design but also at the practice level. The essay also presents and discusses research methodologies mobilized in these research fields, in particular the ethnographic method and more particularly the Commentated Walks that were carried out within the territories. Finally, a reflection is developed on the practice of doctoral supervision in such research field when qualitative and comprehensive methodologies are used.
