L’organisation alternative fondée sur les valeurs : étude ethnographique d’une monnaie locale complémentaire et d’un hackerspace

Abstract : This research focuses on actors organized at the local level in order to struggle systems and practices oriented by capital accumulation. It observes the ability of individuals to produce value-based organizations and the structuring between pragmatic issues and actors’ values. This research is drawing on alternative organizations studies (Parker et al, 2014) and tries to answer the following questions: does the rationalization of the organization necessarily lead to the degeneration of values? What are the organizational conditions of social actions based on value? Do they generate an alternative form of legitimate order? In order to investigate these issues, the research studies on two alternative organizations located in the city of Montpellier. First the « Graine », a local currency that aims to provide an alternative to national currencies and globalized exchanges. Then the « Boat In a Bag », a group of hackers gathered within a common space to provide technological emancipation tools and a common space for free expression. Both stories are written from within, following an ethnographic methodology (Van Maanen, 1979). Accordingly, the qualitative analysis of 41 interviews has been associated with a daily involvement within both organizations, from November 2015 to June 2018. Thus, the case study of these two alternative value-based organizations deals with issues of hierarchy, rationalization, and new organizational principles built around the Do-It-Ocracy.
