Our contribution aims to develop some theoretical constructs about network determinants of multinational corporations and small partners strategic alliances instability. In the case of multinational constellation networks, instability may be a strong strategic tool to maximize global network performance by the multinational firm. Also, the firm will structure the network perimeter by entering or putting out her small partners. Other forces will play in an opposite way of a global network integration: the firm attractiveness, and small partner digestibility. ...French Abstract : L'objet de notre article est de construire et de discuter quelques notions autour de l'instabilité des alliances asymétriques appartenant à des organisations en réseau. Si ces dernières sont gérées par des firmes multinationales - pivot, l'instabilité des coopérations peut être un outil stratégique dynamique pour maximiser la performance globale du réseau à travers à la fois l'accumulation d'une expérience de gestion de l'instabilité par la grande firme, mais aussi à travers un jeu d'entrées-sorties des petits partenaires. Certains forces " centripètes " plaident néanmoins pour une intégration forte et facilitée des petits partenaires dans le périmètre réticulaire de la grande firme : l'attractivité de cette dernière, et la digestibilité de son petit partenaire- cible.
