Based on a review of scholarly, regulatory and policy literatures, this article illustrates how‘safety culture’and‘security culture’are conventionally understood within the context of high-risk organizations. It identifies two important recurring gaps in the literature: (1) the subordination of the analysis of security culture to safety culture concepts, and (2) the anthropocentricity inscribed in both notions, which sideline the dynamic interplaybetween social and technical elements in the constitution of‘culture’. To address these gaps, the article in-troduces concepts and heuristics from Science and Technology Studies, specifically co-production and Actor-Network Theory. Using the concrete examples of the labelling of hazardous materials and the“four eyes”principle, it highlights how these heuristics may open onto a more symmetrical analysis of safety and security cultures in high-risk contexts. It thereby seeks to make visible the mutual shaping of safety and security cultures and attend to the roles of non-human actors as active participants in such processes [less ▲]

How to deconfine safely? At present, many countries are considering a deconfinement strategy, with only few having implemented it. The "best practices", thus, still need to be defined. In this context, the GIGA community would like to carry out "a deconfinement experience in real time". Concretely, the GIGA proposes to collectively define its "deconfinement" methods, and to deploy them, by designing and implementing a deconfinement protocol. The report presents the results on the online survey on "Community engagement in designing a modus operandi to lift GIGA's lockdown. Based on the Delphi Method, the GIGA community members have been invited to identify their expectations on the future protocol and suggested concrete measures for the deconfinement protocol. There were 381 people who completed the first round of the survey (56,70% participation rate) and 340 for the second round of the survey. [less ▲]

A positive understanding of the ecosystem services of green and blue space projects in urban areas is slowly emerging in the Walloon Region. So far, these experiments involving cities, universities and administrations have been carried out in the absence of a shared and coherent framework, with little political support. Two major obstacles are identified by the speakers who testify to a paralyzing politico-administrative fragmentation. First, an absence of a transversal approach between the regional administrations responsible for land use planning and those for the environment. Next, there is almost total responsibility for local actors who have neither the means nor the skills in “environment-health” matters, nor the capacity for ambitious developments in terms of territorial and land planning [less ▲]

This report presents the synthesis of the online enquiry concerning the future for long-term management of high-level radioactive wastes (‘HLRW’) and spent fuel in Belgium, conducted in April and November 2019 by political scientists from the Liege University (Spiral Research Centre, RU Cite, ULiege) with the support of the University of Antwerp (Milieu en Samenleving, UAntwerpen). The main objective of the enquiry was to identify the needs and expectations of various stakeholders regarding the long-term management of high-level radioactive waste and the type of decision-making process they wish to see implemented. 242 people participated; 109 questions were asked; 11,695 responses were proposed by the participants. These constitute a very pluralistic panel of actors involved on nuclear issues for more than 10 years, and composed of committed citizens, scientists but also members of NGOs in favour or against nuclear power, municipal/regional/federal officials active or not in the nuclear and health fields.

The generalization of the use of New Public Management (NPM) instruments, in the name of the effectiveness and efficiency of public action, makes it necessary to reformulate the question of the link between democracy and administration. At the local level, it is possible to freshly analyze the triangle between policy - administration - citizens, as it evolves following the appropriation of new strategic management instruments and participatory mechanisms. The study of the emergence of these devices in Wallonia, highlights new modes of exercise of power and public action and raises the question of their inclusion in a logic of democratic reinforcement.

INTRODUCTION This report is the very first analysis of a recent action research developed in Belgium in the sector of “emergency planning and crisis management”, as a part of PSI-CO. The presentation will focus on the analysis of some of the most significant steps andd achievements to demonstrate the power of pragmatist intervention in policy innovation (Hajer & Wagenaar 2003). Pragmatist approaches to PSI (public sector innovation) is best engaged through research-action, which gives the possibility of organizing concrete activities engaging the actors themselves, in line with the “living lab” methodology. The main issue in this project was to achieve cooperation between the groups of professionals involved in crisis management: they are affiliated to different organizations and they have to cover specific missions (disciplines) designed as: firemen, medical intervention, police, civil protection, communication. The objective of the intervention was to help these professionals develop a process for multidisciplinary debriefing and learning from experience. The intervention was organized first to help them develop together a shared understanding of what “learning from experience” means in each discipline and between disciplines. In a second step, the researchers invited the participants to define with them the new processes and procedures to be implemented in order to favor this “learning for experience”. The fieldwork was organized to “follow the actors and the objects”, with an interpretative methodology for analyzing framings, boundaries, institutional discourses, actors identities and relations. It also allowed us to understand how these change and develop over time during the activities which were proposed to help develop a creative design supporting “learning from experience in a multidisciplinary setting in EP&CM”.

Pagès et al. proposent une analyse d’une organisation au sein de laquelle la délégation hiérarchique de pouvoir fait place à « un système de règles où autonomie et contrôle se renforcent mutuellement » par un processus d’adhésion à une logique qui cherche à assujettir le réel selons ses propres normes énoncées à distance. Les dispositifs de gouvernement prennent appui sur l’engagement et la discipline des professionnels en mobilisant un savoir qui donne une prise plausible à la réalité qu’ils engendrent. Le sujet peut résister à ce cadre normatif pour assurer le nécessaire rapport de vérité à soi-même au niveau de cette expérience vécue, en mobilisant une capacité de reproblématiser les formes historiquement données de pensée et d'expérience imposées dans les dispositifs , comme mobilisation de la liberté de la pensée, ou « la critique comme art de l’inservitude volontaire » . Ce gouvernement à distance est aussi perceptible dans de nombreuses organisations publiques, soumises elles-aussi aux processus de « normativité » propres à la généralisation du dogme néolibéral . L’article propose une analyse des modalités de « conduite des conduites » au sein d’une l’université belge francophone en matière d’enseignement et de recherche. En prenant appui sur les paradoxes au sein des discours décriant les contraintes propres aux situations concrètes des groupes et des individus, l’étude empirique met à jour les modalités concrètes d’engagement des acteurs qui participent au processus de « normativité » et la pluralité des formes de réappropriation des dispositifs de régulation, tantôt en y résistant, tantôt en les reformulant.

Pragmatist approaches to PSI (public sector innovation) is best engaged through research-action which gives the possibility of organising concrete activities engaging the actors themselves. The article will propose the very first analysis of a recent research action developped in Belgium in the sector of “emergency planning and crisis management” : many actors (local officials and associated disciplines such as police, firemen, urgency medical groups and the army) asked me to help them develop at the level of their territory new approaches for developing management tools enhancing the possibility of “learning by experience”. The demand was addressed to me because my research group has been associated to these professionals for the last 10 years as we organised together workshops, training sessions for newcomers in the field, etc. which means also that the level of trust between the participants and us as “metagovernor” was very high. I quickly understood that this intervention had to be participatory as most actors were very interested in the project. The research developped a “Living Labs” environment, which is user-centric and contribute to strengtheni users’ involvement and access to common resources, fostering the possibility for open innovations (Schaffers et al. 2011) with techniques such as “context mapping” (Sleeswijk Visser 2005) and “generative” techniques which can reveal tacit knowledge and expose latent needs (Sanders, 2000). The real-life context of the innovation process contributes to a better understanding of the tacit and domain-based knowledge needed to assess needs and built feasible, appropriable solutions. The participatory techniques must respect some principles to ensure the sensitization of participants but they are to be adapted by the research group to the specific issue at stake. The protocole was based on focus groups, interviews, Delphi on line inquiries, scenario workshops in order to 1) visualise the processes and concerns of the participants, 2) help them creatively imagine and design alternative approaches and 3) test the propositions in local setting before launching the design dynamic upfront (Bason 2017). The main issue was to organise cooperation between these groups of professionals from different disciplines to help them develop together a shared undertanding of what means “learning from experience in each discipline and between disciplines. The fieldwork was organised to “follow the actors and the objects”, with an interpretative methodology for analysing framings, boundaries, institutional discourses, actors identities and relations, in order to understand how these change and develop overtime during the activities which were proposed to help develop a creative design. The presentation will concentrate on the analysis of some of the most significant steps and points of achievements to show the potentialities of pragmatist interventions in adequate processes fostering policy design and innovation.

This paper discusses how two theoretical frameworks from the STS field (co-production and critical realism) can help understand the dynamics of policy development with emerging technologies. The point of departure of this paper is the comparison of the inscription of two emerging technologies in public health sectors. The NIPT (non invasive prenatal testing) for pregnant women very recently developed in many countries, for the detection of foetus anomalities based of the analysis of the mother’s blood (Fallon 2017). At the same time new methods for save medicated abortion are made availbale thanks to internet in all countries. The development of these emerging technologies can be followed through analysing the investments of professionals of the health sector, with public administrations, and with emerging demands from the enduser) : I use these innovations as examples of co-construction of new patterns of “social orders” (Jasanoff 2004,2005) and technologies which followed very diverse trajectories of inscriptions in the local public health systems. The fieldwork was organised to “follow the actors and the objects”, with a comparative interpretative methodology of science/politics relations (analysing framings, boundaries, institutional discourses, actors identities): it helped understand the close and parallel development of technico-scientific and socio-political changes simultaneously.. The comparative approaches (of these technologies within two different countries) highlights the importance to complement the co-productionist approach by integrating specific national modes of production and valuation of scientific knowledge and technological innovations (Tyfield 2012). The same techniques and knowledge are available in both countries, whether for prenatal screening or medical abortion, but the political and policy frameworks are very different in both countries. The medical public programs provide "emancipatory" follow-up for Belgian couples during pregnancy. In Argentina, where the use of legal abortion is very restrictive, the public prenatal screening system remains uncompleted. In both countries, it is possible to compare how these "biopolitical" devices are transformed by technological innovations at the level of knowledge networks and power relations between the state, the medical profession and families.
