Façonner des outils d’analyse pour étudier le changement institutionnel


  • Ostrom, Elinor
  • Basurto, Xavier


La plupart des outils d’analyse déployés en sciences sociales sont bien adaptés à l’étude de situations statiques. Néanmoins, les analyses statiques et mécanistes ne sont guère appropriées pour comprendre le monde en perpétuel changement dans lequel nous vivons. Afin de répondre de manière adéquate aux défis sociaux et environnementaux les plus pressants se profilant à l’horizon, il nous faut développer des outils d’analyse dynamiques pour étudier le changement institutionnel, et plus spécifiquement, l’évolution des règles et des normes. Pour qu’un tel outil analytique contribue au développement d’une théorie générale du changement institutionnel, il doit mettre le chercheur en capacité de rendre compte avec concision des processus de changement dans de multiples contextes spécifiques, de sorte que les leçons tirées de ces contextes puissent finalement être intégrées à une théorie du changement plus générale et plus prédictive.
