Dans Travail et subjectivité. Perspectives critiques, Daniel Mercure et Marie-Pierre Bourdages-Sylvain (Dir.), Chapitre 1, Collection Sociologie Contemporaine, PUL (Presses Universitaires de Laval), Canada, 4ème trimestre 2017, p. 13-42.

DESCRIPTION

Ce livre porte sur les rapports entre le travail et la subjectivité dans le contexte des nombreuses transformations en cours dans le monde du travail. Il vise à analyser et à critiquer les nouvelles pratiques managériales qui s’emploient à mobiliser la subjectivité au travail. Les auteurs, sociologues, économistes, psychosociologues, psychanalystes et théoriciens de la gestion, présentent d’abord les changements économiques, organisationnels et socioculturels qui président à la mise en forme du capitalisme contemporain. Ensuite, ils examinent et critiquent les nouvelles pratiques managériales qui visent à mobiliser la subjectivité des travailleurs aux fins de la valorisation du capital. Tout au long de l’ouvrage, les effets psychosociologiques de telles pratiques sont analysés de près, de même que les réponses des travailleurs qui revêtent diverses formes d’opposition et de résistance individuelle et collective.

Ont contribué au présent ouvrage : Guy Bellemare, Marie-Pierre Bourdages-Sylvain, Robert Boyer, Jean-François Chanlat, Pierre-Antoine Chardel, Olivier Cousin, Eugène Enriquez, Vincent de Gaulejac, Fabienne Hanique, Danièle Linhart, Danilo Martuccelli, Dominique Méda, Daniel Mercure, Marcelo Otero, Jacques Rhéaume, Christian Thuderoz et Michel Wieviorka.

Lectures institutionnalistes de la Chine


La Revue de la régulation fête ses dix ans ! Et encore, si l’on comptait L’Année de la régulation, son aînée, elle aussi portée par l’Association Recherche & Régulation, on fêterait aujourd’hui vingt ans de publications.

Le dossier sur l’économie politique de la Chine que nous présentons dans ce numéro est tout à fait représentatif de ces dix premières années. Il témoigne de la réussite de notre pari : faire vivre une Revue d’économie politique, nourrie des approches régulationnistes et institutionnalistes mais aussi de tous les courants qui engagent le dialogue avec elles. Il pointe aussi quelques-uns des défis auxquels il nous faut faire face.

Pour préparer ce dossier consacré à l’espèce particulière de capitalisme qui se développe aujourd’hui en Chine, Robert Boyer, co-fondateur de la Théorie de la Régulation et de la Revue du même nom, s’est associé à Sébastien Lechevalier (EHESS) (voir l’introduction au dossier). Dix ans après son lancement, un tel dossier permet de jeter un regard rétrospectif et actuel sur ce que représente notre Revue  – et notre communauté de chercheurs. Sans nul doute, la construction de dossiers, souvent portés par des membres du comité de rédaction en collaboration avec un ou plusieurs chercheurs extérieurs à la Revue, est l’une des clés de la dynamique scientifique qui l’anime. Lire la suite…

From the variety of socioeconomic regimes to contemporary international relations


In Policy Change Under New Democratic Capitalism Edited by Hideko Magara, Chapitre 10,Routledge,  ,  2017, p. 202-222.

About the Book

Democratic capitalism in developed countries has been facing an unprecedented crisis since 2008. Its political manageability is declining sharply. Both democracy and capitalism now involve crucial risks that are significantly more serious than those observed in earlier periods. The notion of policy regimes has gained new significance in analysing the possibilities for a post-neoliberal alternative. Policy innovations directed towards an economic breakthrough require both political leadership and a new economic theory. The processes of political decision making have become quite distant from the public realm, and a limited number of economic and political elites exert influence on public policy.

This book examines, from a policy regime perspective, how developed countries attempt to achieve such a breakthrough at critical junctures triggered by economic crises. It initially assesses the nature of the present crisis and identifies the actors involved. Thereafter, it provides an analytical definition of a crisis, stressing that most crises contain within them the potential to be turned into an opportunity. Finally, it presents a new analytical design in which we can incorporate today’s more globalized and fluid context.

Brexit: the day of reckoning for the neo-functionalist paradigm of European Union


Socio-Economic Review, Discussion Forum: « Brexit: understanding the socio-economic origins and consequences » , 2016, Vol. 14, n° 4, p. 836-845.

Abstract

Jacqueline O’Reilly, Julie Froud, Sukhdev Johal, Karel Williams, Chris Warhurst, Glenn Morgan, Christopher Grey, Geoffrey Wood, Mike Wright, Robert Boyer, Sabine Frerichs, Suvi Sankari, Akos Rona-Tas and Patrick Le Galès

The unprecedented geopolitical shift resulting from Brexit reflects deep socio-economic fault lines within and beyond the UK. In many ways foreshadowing the US presidential election of Donald Trump, Brexit brought to the surface and gave a public voice to socio-economic divisions that were deeply embedded, sometimes illogical, but until now had either been ignored or hushed out of ‘respectable’ public debate. This Discussion Forum emanates from a spontaneous seminar organized 2 days after the Brexit vote on June 25, 2016 as part of the SASE conference held in University of California–Berkeley and followed by an open call for papers by Socio-Economic Review. The papers here draw attention to the origins of the Brexit vote in deep-seated socio-economic divisions (O’Reilly), widening differences in economic performance across sectors and regions of the UK (Froud, Sukhdev and Williams) and the growth of poor quality jobs (Warhurst). Meanwhile, the political dynamics of the Brexit vote were also shaped by the fractured nature of UK business elites (Morgan), divisions between locals and cosmopolitans (Grey) and creative but muddled actions of elites that arguably generated consequences they themselves failed to fully anticipate (Wood and Wright). From the perspective of Europe, Brexit reflects a history of dysfunctional economic policy in Europe that prioritized market competition in ways that neglected and ultimately undermined solidarity (Boyer). Here, Brexit reflects a political strategy to both renationalize and recommodify solidarity in the face of fears over migration, and which are likely to have major consequences for social solidarity in Europe more generally (Frerichs and Sankari). However, Brexit is unlikely to provide a durable social and political solution to the wider tensions between globalization and democracy, which also affect all countries throughout Europe (Rona-Tas). Ultimately, the Brexit vote underlines social divisions that combine class inequalities with regional ones, not just in Britain but throughout Europe (Le Galès).
