Associate researcher at BIBS Raphael Lissillour has published an article in the Special Issue on Practicing Sustainability in Operations & Supply Chain Management of the Supply Chain Forum: an international journal. The paper is entitled: ‘Dispositions and conditioning towards sustainability in the supply chain: a habitus perspective in the field of shipping’.
This article is based on French sociologist Bourdieu’s theory of practice and more precisely the concept of habitus. A multiple case study in the field of shipping including over 20 interviews and the analysis of many documents are at the center of this work.
Boundary objects are key to reproduce and replace a predisposition from one field to another. Akin to industrial regulation compliance certificate, they can be used to the development of long-lasting sustainable practices.
