Interuniversity Attraction Pole (IAP) - Phase VI /06 (2007-2011)

DEMOCRATIC GOVERNANCE AND REFLEXIVE THEORY OF COLLECTIVE ACTION

The research undertaken in this project seeks to advance the current research in theory of governance and more specifically governance of collective action and to draw the institutional implications of the resulting understanding of the requirements of a reflexive theory of democratic governance. This research is building upon the work that was developed in the IAP V/23 and in the European FP 6 Integrated Project - REFGOV.

It is deployed at two levels :

  • At a theoretical level, to deepen the pragmatist reading of theory of collective action such as proposed by the "experimentalist and pragmatist" approach to governance.

The Theoretical Unit [ TNU ]

 

  • At a material level, on the basis of three thematic researches, to explore the possible institutional expressions of the resulting requirements for a reflexive governance of collective action :

Foreign Direct Investment and Human Development [ FDI ]
Governance of Biological Commons [ BIOGOV ]
Corporate Governance [ CG ]
