Welcome to ORIO, a research program on Networks & Regulation

cropped-test-orio_v4.jpgORIO  (Observatoire des Réseaux Intra- et Inter-Organisationnels) is a research network created in 1996 to facilitate the implementation of a research program in neo-structural sociology.

rnsc-bannerIt is currently funded by the Réseau National des Systèmes Complexes (rnsc.fr/). It develops and applies multilevel and dynamic, social and organizational network analyses in social settings, including institutions, companies, cooperatives, non profit organizations or markets, i.e. the meso level of society and the economy. Its members measure and model the generic social processes that help collectives manage the dilemmas of collective action: solidarities and exclusions, learning and socialization, social control and conflict resolution, regulation and institutionalization. Our goal is to share methods, techniques, and insights that are needed for complex network studies.
