Contribution à une socio-économie des organisations : l'exemple d'un univers associatif

Abstract : The socio-economic approach that we are proposing is opposed top that adopted by supporters of the theory of rational action. This approach leads us to denounce models which represent man as an actor free from all economic and social conditioning as unrealistic. We believe that the homo-oeconomicus model in which man is nothing but a disembodied being reduced to a maximizer of utility placed under certain constraints, cannot explain real behaviour. In this dissertation, we reject disciplinary compartmentalization and have also attempted to go beyond the descriptive stage found in most studies on organizations. We have demonstrated the usefulness of combining Pierre Bourdieu's theory of the habitus and the field with the grid of organizations developed by the professors in the "strategy and business policy" department of the Groupe HEC. Such an approach, as shown in this study, does, in fact, enable us to go beyond the descriptive stage to arrive at a better understanding of how organizations operate the group of associations studied is made up of sports clubs. In these non-profit organizations, the agents can be both consumers and members. The socioeconomic perspective which we have adopted lets us not only explain how these organizations operate as fields, but also lets us explain these "consumer" choices
