This contribution explores how actors redefine infrastructures through an analysis of a project of “modernisation” in the making. Nowadays several companies undertake serious reflexions about their work environments, tools and practices according to the “Bricks”, “Bytes” and “Behaviours” motto (De Leede, 2017). Relying on digital solutions they aim to enhance more flexible work practices in time and space. For that purpose various strategic and operational actors contribute actively to foreseeing the future of both facility, technological and social infrastructures. By means of adjustment mechanisms such as coordination meetings and alignment speeches, the actors take various actions in order to ensure the continuity of the organisation; they perform what Ribes and Finholt named the “Long Now”, an ongoing work to generate a “sustainable future” (2009, p. 377). Our interest lies in exploring simultaneously the incremental deconstruction of the existing infrastructures and the progressive construction of the forthcoming work environment. This innovation process may be seized by studying successive waves of problematisation using the actor-network theory. In the perspective of the ANT, an organisation is always a precarious agency made of both people and artefacts (Latour, 2005). Material issues, technological opportunities and constraints as well as power games emerge through the analysis of “controversies” which make parts of the infrastructures noticeable and subject to discussion and negotiation. Those controversies evolve through time, revealing various “range of visibilities” of people and things at different times in the process (Larkin, 2013, p. 336). Our research shows how actors simultaneously make sense of the existing infrastructure while enacting its future developments. We point out how the actors themselves perceive, describe and draw on the infrastructure in order to make sense of the strategic objectives, to conduct the change project and to maintain their institution. We shed light on the process of redefining and reshaping the infrastructure itself through controversies and adjustments. [less ▲]

The aim of this paper is twofold. It firstly aims to account for the Matrix of Excellence, Funding and Omnipresence characterizing academic organizations, and more precisely their constitutive three dimensions: managerial discourse, formal and parallel structures (Friedberg, 2012). Secondly, drawing on the metaphor of shadow organizing (Gherardi et al., 2017), we will illustrate some informal coping mechanisms occurring in the parallel structure of academic organizations. We will then discuss how these coping mechanisms are or are not being translated in managerial discourse and inscribed in formal structures. [less ▲]

Considering that Belgian prison policy has been characterized by an increase of managerial and legal regulations in the last fifteen years, this rise of “inscribed knowledge” (Freeman & Sturdy, 2015) leads to a sharper need of prison managers for “practical wisdom” (Chia and Holt, 2009). Two statements enlighten this paradoxical irony. Firstly, law and policy don't apply automatically, but must always be interpreted by human actors in relation to the situation. Secondly, the increase in legal and managerial demands reinforces prison governors’ more general inclinations to “satisficing” decisions (Simon, 1956). Drawing on two years of qualitative research with 30 Belgian prison governors, Christophe aims at analysing how prison governors are “enacting” prison policy and organisations (Weick, 1988), rather than being simply determined by it.

In the last fifteen years, Belgian prisons have been characterized by an increase of managerial and legal regulations. This rise of “inscribed knowledge” (Freeman & Sturdy, 2015) however leads to a sharper need of prison governors for “practical wisdom” (Chia and Holt, 2009). Firstly, because law and policy don't apply automatically, but must always be interpreted by human actors in relation to the situation. Secondly, because the increase of legal and managerial inscriptions reinforces prison governors’ more general inclinations to “satisficing” decisions (March and Simon, 1958). Drawing on four years of qualitative research with 40 Belgian prison governors, this empirically based paper analyses how they cope with complex, uncertain and ambiguous situations where neither epistemic nor technical knowledge is available. In doing so, we assume that they – at least marginally – “enact” prison organisations and prison policy (Weick, 1988). [less ▲]

Parmi les études de sciences sociales ayant pris pour objet les pratiques de médiation dans différents champs, citons notamment les contributions récentes d’Élisabeth Volckrick (2015) sur l’enlèvement parental international d’enfants (voir également sa contribution au présent colloque), de Fabrizio Cantelli (2015) sur la médiation en milieu hospitalier et de Christophe Dubois (2008 et 2012) sur la justice réparatrice en milieu carcéral. Ces auteurs ont en commun d’étudier des pratiques et des dispositifs s’étant développés comme alternatives ou compléments aux modalités juridiques traditionnelles de prise en charge des droits de l’enfant, des droits du patient et du droit pénal notamment.

Following the publication of international reports and recommendations 1, 2, 84, to improve the quality of care in prison has become a concern in several countries. The WHO Moscow Declaration states that “penitentiary health must be an integral part of the public health system of any country” 1. A selection of neighbouring countries was studied. These included those in which a similar transfer was performed (e.g Scotland, France and some Swiss cantons), but also the Netherlands, as an example of a country in which such transfer was not done.

This article concerns the treatment of patients’ rights cases in French‐speaking Belgian hospitals by the “mediator”, that is, the person who has the legal duty of dealing with grievances arising from the application of this right of complaint. What happens to a patient’s complaint? This is the question that this article attempts to answer through a report on the “local” organization of mediation ser‐ vices within the hospital. It thus clari es the links and divergences between the formal discourses accompanying the implementation of the mediation function in health care on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the actual practices of media‐ tion determined by the work of mediators in the hospital.

Résumé : En parcourant les nombreuses études qui décrivent et analysent, depuis plus de vingt ans, le fonctionnement des organisations et des politiques pénitentiaires, trois questions semblent avoir jusqu’ici suscité un moindre intérêt scientifique : qui dirige ces organisations ? En quoi consiste le travail des équipes de direction ? Quelle position les membres de ces équipes occupent-ils dans le système organisationnel et politique pénitentiaire belge ? Cet article apporte quelques éléments de réponse à ces questions tout en éclairant les recompositions des contextes de travail des équipes de direction pénitentiaire. Cet éclairage souligne la nécessité de définir politiquement et avec les principaux intéressés un processus de professionnalisation de la fonction qu’ils exercent. [less ▲]
