CENTER FOR ORGANIZATIONAL SOCIOLOGY (CSO)
http://www.cso.edu/home.asp?langue=en& The CSO, which gave birth to the French school of organizational sociology, is a research center afﬁliated with Sciences Po and the CNRS (UMR 7116) since 2001. Founded by Michel Crozier in the early 1960s, it is currently directed by Olivier Borraz. The CSO’s work is located at the intersection of organizational sociology, economic sociology, and the sociology of public policy, to enable a rethinking of transformations of the state, markets and organizations together. Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, its research is based on in-depth comparative studies focusing on actors themselves so as to analyze contexts of cooperation and collective action. Financed primarily by major French and European institutions, the CSO’s research is fuelled by ambitious intellectual questions but also connected to issues relevant to our social environment. The CSO’s contributions are therefore not limited only to the production of academic knowledge, at national and international levels; it is also engaged in a dynamic exploration of developments within French society, in a European and global context. The CSO’s research is organized in the following ways: Four cross-cutting lines of research, with the primary aim of exploring theoretical issues: • Government, governance, regulation • Production, circulation and uses of knowledge • Division of labour and value of work • Organizations and markets Seven programs covering various ﬁelds of empirical research, designed to highlight the issues on which the CSO has developed expertise likely to be of interest to public and private sector decision-makers: • Risk • Healthcare • Higher education and research • Firms • Labor markets and professional groups • Economic governance • Regions and urban development The CSO has a permanent faculty of over 20 researchers and professors, approximately 30 doctoral students and roughly the same number of research fellows. Doctoral students enrolled in the CSO doctoral program are directly attached to one of the Center’s research projects and are fully integrated into the collective functioning of the CSO. In addition, the CSO often employs postdoctoral researchers on research contracts for short- and medium- term projects. The doctoral program in sociology at Sciences Po, directed by Didier Demaziere, CNRS research director at the CSO, enjoys multiple links with the scholarly activities of the CSO. The CSO also offers a specialized doctoral program of its own.
