ORIO (Observatoire des Réseaux Intra- et Inter-Organisationnels) is a research network created in 2003 to facilitate the implementation of a research program in neo-structural sociology. It is currently funded by the Institut Universitaire de France (http://www.iufrance.fr/les-membres-de-liuf/membre/414-emmanuel-lazega.html)
and 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 social and ortanizational, dynamic and multilevel network studies.
