Course Description : In contemporary societies, organizations and institutions are among the most important mesoand macro-level social structures ﬁltering human action into social processes. They make it possible for interdependent and conﬂicting members – often heterogeneous and competing – to act collectively and to cooperate at various levels (intraand inter-organizational, local and global). This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of organization theory from a sociological perspective : control and efﬁciency ; bureaucracy and collegiality ; interdependencies and resources ; power and exchange ; etc. It looks at the recursive ways in which the environment shapes organizations (technology, professions, and markets), and in which organizations shape their environments, including social stratiﬁcation and contribution to the reproduction of inequalities. It will then question the value of this set of concepts at the international level and in the age of globalization. Special emphasis will be put on institutions and the meaning of an 'organizational society' at the international level, but also on the approach of social processes –facilitating collective action in the age of globalization – from a network perspective. Required reading : (“Reading for this week”) before class. Read or browse through the “suggested” texts if you are interested in the speciﬁc topic.
