My research work is at the crossroads of three innovation fronts crucial for the renewal of forms of collective governance of ecosystems:
By choosing management sciences as my main discipline, I have chosen to consider ecosystems not only as ecological objects, but also as particular forms of collective organisations in the making that need to be enriched, transformed or brought into being in order to obtain results in terms of conservation (on such a perspective, see for example this video, and more broadly all the work in Strategic Analysis of Environmental Management, cf L. Mermet’s website).
This managerial and organisational reading of biodiversity protection issues, far from closing the door to other disciplines – ecology, economy, law, philosophy, etc. – on the contrary, provides them with a space for crystallisation, which has the particularity of giving a predominant place in the analysis to collective action.
My research is based on the development and testing of conceptual frameworks in operational situations of change management for ecosystems. This work is carried out using research-intervention methods in collaboration with private or public partners.
