The transition towards sustainable development is tackled by the “deliberative research” approach. The involvement of researchers in the collective action, obliges them to build new relations between research and actors, making the research relevant regarding the identified stakes. The approach – in this case of an organic beef food chain – starts by an identification step of concerns and viewpoints. The analysis leads on one hand to a proposal of action, which reconfigures the relations and stabilizes intermediary objects and on the other hand to research proposals which are intended to give answers to issues related to the action. These researches are related to different models according the way they associate actors and objects. Their outcomes feed the running action and open to a new food chain "référentiel" (frame of reference) Résumé français [less ▲]

Food quality standards can be analysed as results of a convention process. This paper focuses on a beef farm production and commercialisation chain. It analyses the confrontation between a farmer’s project and the industrial norms that are ruling the Belgian beef market. This confrontation leads to a kind of hybridation of quality definition, but the paper shows how quality definition is closely linked with the kind of underlying commitments. Principles and criteria of collective organisation are modelling quality standards in such a way that flexibility and sensitivity to mutual demands are more important that stability and generalisation.

An analytical model for the environmental regulation of agriculture under various aspects, such as the definition of environment, type of agricultural practice, incentives, scale of application and mode of administration, is presented. In a number of cases, technical, scientific, social and economic factors also have to be addressed (especially as regards the notion of uncertainty), which entails taking into account a series of heterogeneous and less obvious aspects. A new typology of institutional settings is therefore drawn up, which emphasizes the constraints present in any regulation. Particular reference is made to the EU. [less ▲]
