Crystallisation of collective action in the emergence of a geographical indication system
AbstractBuilding a new Geographical Indication GIi) implies crucial strategic decisions regarding the norms of the production process, the limits of the geographical area and the choice of the protected GI name. Who is going to make these decisions? What is the best path to successfully start the initiative? Two approaches have been tested recently in practice: the cluster approach and the working group approach. This paper presents the scientific background of these two approaches. A state of the art is proposed on the concept of cluster, developed in Industrial Economics. The actor-network theory, developed in Economic Sociology, is used to analyse the “translation cycles” followed by most working groups. Based on case studies, this paper highlights the benefits and risks of both approaches, and discusses a combined approach.
