La logique sociale du développement territorial


(with J. Nussbaumer), Presses de l'Université du Québec, Montreal. 2008. (ISBN: 978-2760513730)

This book looks at new opportunities for local development. It defines the contours of a new generation of analysis on the subject. The authors suggest a historical reconstruction of the evolution of the social logic in the analysis of territorial development and explore the various meanings of social innovation in the contemporary scientific literature, resulting in a synthesis of its various dimensions. They propose two models of social innovation "territorialization" : integrated territorial development and social region. They also reflect on future avenues of epistemological order to facilitate the analysis between territorial development and social innovation. In this reflection they give a central place to ‘sociology of knowledge’.
