Au-delà de la confrontation : saisir la diversité des interactions entre mondes militants et économiques

Abstract : For the past twenty years, a rich body of literature has focused on the interactions between activist and economic worlds. This introduction to the thematic issue “Activist worlds, economic worlds: contentiousness, boundaries, and cooperation” reviews the main insights from this field, but also highlights its blind spots. While the dominant scholarship on “social movements, firms, and markets” insists on the dimensions of segmentation, contrast and confrontation, we call attention to the porosity of the boundaries between activist and economic worlds. We suggest three main analytical shifts to grasp the continuities, overlaps and transfers between these two worlds: 1/a focus on hybrid collectives and practices, at the intersection of the activist and economic worlds ; 2/a perspective in terms of “cause fields”, within which actors from heterogeneous universes converge ; 3/a micro-sociological approach, centered on the activists and/or professionals. Echoing these programmatic orientations, the articles of this issue bring to light the diversity of interactions between the activist and economic worlds, beyond the logic of confrontation.
