Coordination is described as a widespread function emerging in relation to policy plans inducing collaboration between different sectors, organizations and professions. This paper suggests seeing the implementation phase as a translation process, one where the content of policy plans is reinvented primarily through discussion rather than linearly transferred from the political to the professional arena. It focuses on the function of coordinator with a view to examining how this function is performed and questions its influence on the local translation of both policy plans. The data collection was part of two research projects focusing on the reform of Belgian mental healthcare and the creation of care pathways for forensic patients, combining document analysis, interviews (n = 82) and observations (n = 58). The results highlight the inherent ambiguity of the coordinators’ working environment, the socially-disputed nature of their function and define the coordinators as connection-makers who exert power over processes rather than people or structures. It demonstrates that coordinators influence the policy process by inducing discussions at meetings and the documents subsequently produced. In conclusion, this paper defines coordinators as process managers whose work largely consists of translating policy plans through event connectivity and contextualizing practices. Given the importance of translation in policy implementation, this paper calls for a reconsideration of policy evaluation as well as of the coordinators’ recruitment and training procedures.

Contemporary health policies constitute a real challenge in terms of collaborations, in the sense that they request cross-sectoral or cross-organisational collaborations (Clavier & Gagnon, 2013; Crosby & Bryson, 2010) as an answer to complex societal problems (Daviter, 2017). Beside this, those new policies also show an evolution in the policy piloting process as an increasing responsibility is delegated to field actors for interpreting those policy plans, strengthening the role of local communities within the production of public action (Bureau & Sainsaulieu, 2011; Dubois & Orianne, 2012; Genard, 2007). Those new health policies open the doors for the emergence of new intermediary professional roles, including the network coordinators. With this paper, our objective is to empirically illustrate and understand those coordinators’ place and role in the Belgian forensic mental health (FMH) policy piloting and implementation processes. The FMH policy shows a clear evidence regarding this twofold trend. Six mandated local networks gathering local stakeholders were created in order to (1) organise the development of (cross-) sectoral collaborations as well as to (2) implement the policy vision at the local level. For each network two coordinators were mandated by the public federal authorities. This paper is based on a qualitative research combining three different methods of data collection. It includes policy and network document analysis, thirty-five semi-structured interviews with stakeholders from the FMH field and fifteen observations of (federal and network) meetings. This methodology allowed us to follow the implementation and construction processes of the FMH policy plan since 2016 at different levels of action. Our research allowed us to understand that FMH coordinators play a key role regarding the twofold trend of contemporary health policies. The paper will show that they are sorts of “reform leaders” (Denis & Van Gestel, 2015), responsible for managing the implementation process. Each coordinator is both the “delegated translator” (Thunus, 2014) of a policy plan as well as the local stakeholders’ spokesperson. Furthermore, as for middle managers and boundary spanners, they are responsible for disseminating new ideas and knowledge across organisational and sectoral boundaries (Kimble, Grenier, & Goglio-Primard, 2010; Oldenhof, Stoopendaal, & Putters, 2016; Pichault & Schoenaers, 2012; Radaelli & Sitton-Kent, 2016). Coordinators are thus “more than passive linking pins, transmitting senior manager instructions unquestioningly down the organization” (Harding et al., 2014, p.1215). This knowledge translation and sharing allow to articulate the different stakeholders’ visions, interests and to ‘align among differences’ (Quick & Feldman, 2014). Horizontally, the coordinator draws linkages between local actors, allowing him to produce a coordinated action. Vertically, the coordinator forms the link between street-level implementation actions and formal stated policy (Gofen, 2013) and thus ensure a continuous mutual adaption between ‘what is wanted’ and ‘what is done’. In conclusion, we aim to demonstrate that the coordinator thus emerges as one of the key players of contemporary policy making and implementing processes, to whom a certain political responsibility is indirectly transferred since they directly influence the production and the structuring of the public action.

Likewise to other authors, Rutherford (2010) states that “these last two decades there has been a convergence between mental health and criminal justice policy, legislation, systems and practice, [...] boundaries between the two systems are becoming increasingly blurred.” With this communication, we suggest to approach this question by replacing it in the context of the internment field, which currently undergoes a process of deep reorganisation and transformation. Historically, the Belgian Internment measure has been oscillating between justice and health since the first regulations of the measure (Cartuyvels & al., 2010). However, the underlying logic of the approach was mainly based on a model in which the protection of society was predominant. This perspective leads to inadequate treatments toward this group of patients and leads to multiple convictions of the Belgian state by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Following this, a new legislation came into effect on October 1st, 2016. Regarding the political arena, several policy initiatives have been directed toward reorganising the care offer for MIOs. In 2016, this political will became concrete through the Masterplan Internment at the initiative of the Ministry of Public Health. With the arrival of those new legal and political regulations, we observe a paradigm shift in the way the approach toward this public is conceptualised in Belgium: the notions of social reinsertion and care recovery through adapted and individualised care trajectories are becoming central. The legal framework as well as the policy plan constitute new hybrid devices (Pans & al., 2016) whose objective is to stimulate collaborations between the mental health and justice sectors professionals in order to foster the MDOs reintegration pathway. With those regulations emerged new hybrid professionals, as for example local network coordinators and healthcare mobile teams, positioned at the crossroad of justice and mental health fields, moving through care and justice spaces and places (prisons and mental health facilities). By penetrating both sectors through active collaboration with professionals from both sectors, they play a role of boundary spanners and knowledge brokers, connecting together several entities previously separated by a boundary – organisational or sectoral (Kislov et al. 2017; Williams, 2002). Since these new regulations, we perceive an important acceleration of collaborations between mental health and justice professionals – justice assistants, mobile teams, psychiatrists, staff of psychiatric hospitals and other mental health facilities, and so on. We argue that those new hybrid devices and professionals play a key role within the opening up of the sectors and come to foster the blurring of mental health and justice sectors’ respective boundaries. Therefore, we would like to ask to which extent does this hybridisation pervades health and justice professionals’ discourses and representations? Regarding the empirical material, three different methods of data collection have been combined. It includes document analysis, more than fifty semi-structured interviews with stakeholders from both fields and observations of meetings gathering policy makers and/or professionals from both field. We suggest that this methodological triangulation was necessary to understand the ongoing transformation of cross-sectoral collaborations in a more comprehensive way. [less ▲]

This communication suggests that Belgian forensic mental health policy is created every time individuals gather to talk about it.  It argues that looking closely at micro-level interactions is essential to understanding how policy takes shape.  Based on ethnographic descriptions of strategic committee meetings, this article first shows that the meeting frame involves a succession of formal and informal kinds of talk, including pre-meeting and coffee break discussions.  Second, and consequently, the meeting enables new connections between previously separated events taking place in multiple arenas.  Third, documents supporting the meeting mediate the various relationships (i) between participants, by providing them with a common reference, and (ii) between the meeting frame and its environment, by invoking parts of this environment in the meeting room and conversely.  In this way, talk in meeting gives meaning to the policy by affording the development of new socio-material relationships.  'Talking policy' is, in turn, the very way in which policy makers and experts reveal and interpret its content.

The contemporary Belgian health policies (mental health, chronic diseases, rare disease...) constitute a real challenge in terms of governance, in the sense that they mobilise interdisciplinary networks of actors. Indeed, Belgian health policy plans in different health sub-sectors request cross-sectoral or cross-organisational collaborations (Clavier & Gagnon, 2013; Crosby & Bryson, 2010) as an answer to complex societal problems (Daviter, 2017). In this context, coordinators emerge as intermediary actors entrusted with a political mandate consisting in connecting different levels of action, sectors and organisations. With this communication we aim to study the coordinators’ place in the forensic mental health governance structure. Three different methods of data collection have been combined. It includes document analysis (i.e. policy plans, coordinators job descriptions), more than sixty semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders (policy-makers, coordinators and network professionals) and fifteen observations of meetings (federal coordination meeting with political authorities and local network meetings organised by coordinators). We argue that this triangulation of data collection methods allowed us to comprehensively understand the coordinators’ place in the governance structure as well as their role in the policy processes. The collected data were analysed in Nvivo thanks to a system of coding both developed inductively as well as deducted from the literature review. This abductive methodology helped us to constantly confront the field reality with the scientific literature. Thanks to our methodology, we could follow the implementation and construction processes of the forensic mental health policy plan since 2016, both at the federal (top-down practices) and local levels (bottom-up practices). Our empirical material has showed that coordinators are key actors of the forensic mental health sector governance structure. By being at the intersection of several sectors, institutions and persons, coordinators indirectly enhance communication between previously separated actors (i.e. from justice, health and welfare sectors). First, coordinators constitute a bridge between the justice and health sectors and, therefore, allow the articulation of those different stakeholders at different levels of action (i.e. between justice and health organisations). The arrival of those professionals has strongly reinforced the cross-sectoral governance of the sector. Second, by being situated in between the federal and local levels, coordinators also ensure the vertical integration of policymakers’ and professionals’ visions, by reinforcing both top-down and bottom-up practices. This contribute to strengthening the vertical line of governance. Finally, coordinators also enhance the horizontal integration of the different network partners’ ideas, information and concerns between one network’s partners, reinforcing the network governance. Contemporary health policies ask for new modes of governance, promoting collaborative governance (Kislov et al., 2017) and setting up networks to enhance collaborations (Buttard, 2008). More specifically, mandated networks show a special need for mixed governance styles in order to achieve a higher level of coordination when facing a mandated network (Rodriguez et al., 2007). As we saw with the forensic mental health sector, coordinators allow to overcome certain barriers in terms of governance and enhance at the same time different styles of governance (i.e. vertical and horizontal). Thanks to their intermediate position coordinators support the development of an effective collaborative governance including a diversity of stakeholders. However, the research showed that the coordinators’ style of leadership (transformational, integrative, and authoritative) substantially defines the policy governance structure. Therefore, we would like to raise the question of the training and selection of those emergent intermediary professionals. [less ▲]

En 2016, suite à de nombreuses condamnations de l’état belge par la CEDH, les ministères de la santé publique et de la justice produisent conjointement un plan politique « Internement », document très synthétique reprenant les grandes lignes d’une politique à construire et d’objectifs à atteindre. Avec cette communication nous montrerons comment ce document, en contraste avec d’autres politiques publiques, ne formule pas une définition formalisée du patient interné. Nous verrons comment des représentations différentes du patient se mélangent et se construisent au quotidien dans les interactions entre des professionnels de différents secteurs ou sous-secteurs de la santé, du social et de la justice : parfois patient, parfois interné ou encore détenu, souvent irresponsable, parfois participatif et parfois assisté, curable et ré-insérable, de malade à dangereux, voire les deux. Enfin, nous montrerons comment cette conception floue, incertaine et multiple du patient interné impacte les pratiques des professionnels à différents niveaux, et dans le développement de l’offre de services.

In this paper, we reflect on the work of coordinators in the fields of mental healthcare and internment. We examine the contribution of this new type of workers to the implementing of policy plans targeting complex social problems, such as the issue of mental health care fragmentation. We outline a theoretical and methodological framework appropriate to the study of coordination in action, before describing the coordinators’ working environment, concrete coordination practices and the occasions in which they are visible. Based on this empirical description, we argue that the coordinator work begin more with ignorance than with knowledge and that coordinators do not know precisely who they are, as coordinators, both individually and collectively. Neither do they know exactly what to do. The coordinators’ world is nevertheless full of knowledge: there are plenty of experts claiming diverging interpretations of the complex problems addressed by the coordinators. Therefore, we ask how the coordinators deal with their ignorance in such an ambiguous world, that is, a world characterised by both an abundance of knowledge and a scarcity of resources. We show that postulating the coordinators ignorance helps to see what is the core of their function and how they perform their work, that is, by attending and scheduling meetings where previously separated and incommensurable events are linked together.

With this presentation, we would like to focus on the particular role of “coordinators” within a context of policy implementation process (Multiannual plans and Masterplan). We will show that the TSI Coordinators endorsed a role of “Translators” [Latour and Callon] since they are at the heart of this implementation process. We therefore argue that those Health Coordinators circulate knowledge between policy-makers and field professionals, between justice and health professionals and between other health coordinators and themselves. This circulation of knowledge can be observed in meetings organised at both the local and federal levels, as well as through more informal meetings and participation in working groups. Coordinators are also inscribing knowledge by writing documents, mails and minutes of meetings. Finally, we would like to argue that this circulation and inscription of knowledge allow the policy implementation process by reinforcing the articulation [Strauss] both between local and policy levels and between justice and health sectors.

Het domein van de zorg voor geïnterneerde personen kent internationaal een omslag. Naast de “criminalisering” van personen met een psychiatrische stoornis die criminele feiten begaan, ontwikkelen er zich nieuwe visies en zorgperspectieven op de kwaliteit van leven en de re-integratie in de maatschappij van zowel personen met psychische kwetsbaarheid als geïnterneerde personen.

De tout temps la surdité a été appréhendée d’un point de vue médical par les sciences, avec comme objectif de rendre l’ouïe à ceux ne l’ayant pas. Cependant, depuis plus d’une vingtaine d’années, certains auteurs des sciences sociales s’intéressent à cet objet d’un point de vue culturel : la surdité en tant que culture. Des auteurs se penchent également sur la notion d’ « identité sourde », supposée recouvrir une réalité homogène. Cependant, plusieurs auteurs écrivent sur le sujet, tout en montrant la complexité de la réalité couverte par cette expression. Dès lors, si l’expression « identité sourde » ne correspond pas un bloc monolithique, que recouvre-t-elle actuellement en Belgique francophone ? Pour répondre à cette première question, il est tout d’abord nécessaire de s’en poser une seconde : comment et autour de quelles dynamiques l’identité de la personne sourde se construit-elle ? Dans ce mémoire, nous chercherons donc à apporter des réponses à ces deux questions à travers, d’une part, la construction d’une revue de la littérature scientifique traitant du sujet et, d’autre part, l’analyse d’un matériau empirique récolté auprès de différents informateurs sourds et entendants.
