Abstract

Le problème de notre temps n’est pas de choisir entre globalisation et repliement identitaire : on ne peut ignorer ni la diversité des pays, ni leur interdépendance croissante face aux périls écologiques et sociaux qui les affectent tous. La langue française permet de dépasser ce faux dilemme avec la distinction qu’elle autorise entre globalisation et mondialisation. Globaliser, c’est œuvrer au règne du Marché, de la croissance illimitée, de la flexibilisation du travail et de l’hégémonisme culturel. Mondialiser consiste à établir un ordre mondial respectueux de notre écoumène, du travail humain et de la diversité des peuples et des cultures. Le présent ouvrage explore cette perspective à la lumière de l’œuvre visionnaire de Simone Weil. Il revisite ses réflexions sur l’enracinement, la liberté et l’oppression, pour penser tour à tour notre « milieu vital » (dont la destruction s’accélère aujourd’hui), le concert des civilisations, les conditions d’un travail non servile, ainsi que les bons et mauvais usages du droit.

Abstract

Standards often remain unseen, yet they play a fundamental part in the organisation of contemporary capitalism and society at large. What form of power do they epitomise? Why have they become so prominent? Are they set to be as important for the globalisation of services as for manufactured goods? Graz draws on international political economy and cognate fields to present strong theoretical arguments, compelling research and surprising evidence on the role of standards in the global expansion of services, with in-depth studies of their institutional environment and cases including the insurance industry and business process outsourcing in India. The power of standards resembles a form of transnational hybrid authority, in which ambiguity should be seen as a generic attribute, defining not only the status of public and private actors involved in standardisation and regulation, but also the scope of issues concerned and the space in which such authority is recognised when complying to standards.
