    Abstract

    L’histoire de l’Association des Producteurs Artisans (ACP), une organisation de commerce équitable au Népal, illustre un aspect important – mais souvent ignoré – de la recherche sur les organismes de dévelopement : que chaque organisation évolue de manière unique, et ne se prête donc pas nécessairement à des catégorisations standardisées telles que ‘la société à but non-lucratif’, ‘l’entreprise’, ‘l’oeuvre de bienfaisance’, ou ‘l’ONG’, entre autres. Les structures, les idées, et les cultures de ce genre d’organisation sont construites à travers des pratiques basées sur des logiques diverses et contingentes. Nous argumentons, de ce fait, contre une approche managériale qui considèrerait que de telles organisations ne sont rien d’autre que de simples variantes ou hybrides d’autres organismes. Nous contestons l’idée qu’elles seraient des structures ou des systèmes homogènes qui ne feraient qu’opérer au sein d’un environnement plus large en faveur d’une perspective plus interactive et plus dynamique au sein de laquelle des acteurs auraient le pouvoir de changer leur environnement. Une telle approche met en avant l’idée de la ‘deviance positive’ en tant que méthode d’apprentissage susceptible d’éviter une pensée stéréotypée.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 377–396. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.11
