About us

The Management & Organisation research team is interested in the theme of organisations and organised collective action. Using a cross-disciplinary approach and analysing spaces of freedom within organisations as well as routine dynamics, they draw on the social sciences (anthropology, economics, psychology and sociology in particular), while at the same time developing theoretical perspectives on management. At the beginning of 2017, the team included 32 doctoral students, 13 lecturers (maîtres de conférences), 5 of whom are qualified to supervise research, 7 professors, 1 contractual professor, 3 emeritus professors, and 1 CNRS researcher. From 2010 to 2015 the team was managed by François-Xavier de Vaujany, who handed over to Fabien Blanchot in the autumn of 2020. Their regular activities include research seminars held on the first Tuesday of every month, annual theme-specific research days, doctoral seminars, writing seminars and maintaining links with several different research chairs...For more information


Key events in the life of the team from 2012 to 2017

The M&O team is committed to strengthening the reputation of their work in academic environments both nationally and internationally, as well as firms and more broadly productive organisations, civil society and the public authorities.

  • Team members are associated with and involved in the governance of several learned societies (e.g. EGOS, AIMS, SMS, AIM, AEI, AGRH) that reflect their three primary disciplinary interests: strategy and entrepreneurship, information systems management, and human resources management. Notable examples include:

    • Catherine Leger-Jarniou has chaired the Académie de l’Entrepreneuriat et de l’Innovation (AEI) since the spring of 2017;

    • Isabelle Bouty and Lionel Garreau currently serve as elected trustees of the Association Internationale de Management Stratégique (AIMS);

    • Stéphanie Dameron was elected in 2014 to serve three years as “programme chair” for the “strategy practice” group of the Strategic Management Society (SMS). She is one of very few French researchers to participate in the governance of this American society.

  • Team members are also involved in developing the Fondation de Coopération Scientifique (FCS) Paris Sciences en Lettres (PSL), the structure behind the Idex programme, of which Université Paris Dauphine is a founding member. Several research projects have been selected for funding by the FCS. In particular, Eric Brousseau oversees one of the first three IRIS initiatives (interdisciplinary and strategic research) at PSL: “Governance Analytics”, which was launched in 2016. This initiative received funding of €1.4 million for its launch phase.

  • The M&0 team plays a very active role organising workshops with an international scope and conferences (e.g. AIMS in 2015). Examples include:

    • Each year in May, Grégor Bouville and Eric Campoy host the “Workshop on research advances in Organizational Behavior & Human Resource Management” at Dauphine;

    • In June 2012 and June 2014, Stéphanie Dameron and Lionel Garreau ran the Dauphine Strategy Workshop, which involved around 60 researchers from 10 different countries. These sessions led to the publication of a special issue.

    • François-Xavier de Vaujany was behind the creation and development of the Organizations, Artifacts and Practices (OAP) workshop, which was launched at Université Paris Dauphine in 2011. Since then, the workshop has been held twice yearly (June and December) across the world (e.g. Australia, Singapore, Portugal);

    • Every year Eric Brousseau organises the Institutional and Organizational Economics Academy, a spring school that brings together around 20 international researchers and 60 doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. Since it was first established in 2002, the school has catered for almost 700 participants, most of whom now hold positions as academics or analysts.


  • The team works closely on the transformations facing society in terms of organisations and strategy, and their research regularly takes place in the context of partnerships with groups from society (public authorities, firms and associations).

    • They play a highly active role developing and running academic chairs. Four chairs were set up and/or developed during this period: “Management and diversity” in 2009 (renewed in 2012 and 2016), “Economic and strategic intelligence of organizations” in 2011 (renewed in 2015), “Governance and regulation” in 2015, and “Trust and management” in 2016. All of these chairs continue to be active as of June 2017. The M&0 research team alone is responsible for almost half of the chairs run by the Fondation Dauphine and makes a significant contribution to the University’s academic reputation and communication;

    • Research contracts: Fondation CIGREF (signed in 2012), ANR INCA with Mines-Paris Tech, University of Wuppertal and University of Karlsruhe (Germany) on the “Digitalisation of society: a new approach to risk" (signed in 2016), and consultancy firm Carewan for academic activities at the Observatoire de l’Engagement (signed in 2015 and renewed in 2016);

    • Particularly mindful of the need to produce relevant research, three of the team’s publications were nominated for the Syntec-Consult’in award for their managerial implications (2014, 2015 and 2016).
