La fabrique de l'innovation institutionnelle : les marchés du carbone comme champs d'expérimentations managériales

Abstract : Climate change belongs to a new category of environmental issues, for which we don't know how to design solutions. Indeed, it is possible to treat traditional pollutions using technical solutions that are already known. To the contrary, mitigating climate change involves a profound revision of the organizational models that support our modern societies. The institutional device to guide this low carbon transition still needs to be designed. Traditionally, the question of institutional innovation is addressed in a field of organization theories named “neo-institutional theory”. Nevertheless, research in this field has focused on the diffusion of institutional innovation, but not on the design of institutional innovation itself. In a global context of crisis of our societal models, there is an emergency for this gap to be explored. In the context of institutional theory, this work analyzes the mechanisms of “institutional design” through the case of carbon markets. We build two notions that help to better understand the mechanisms at play: the notion of experimental platforms and the notion of institutional design work. Eventually, we build on previous work in management sciences on the concept of bricolage to identify the efficiency conditions of this design activity.
