Title translated from French: From autonomous work to cooperation: Coopaname's tools for managing meaning (Du travail autonome à la coopération : les outils de gestion du sens de Coopaname)
This case study focuses on a French cooperative organisation whose members are autonomous women workers with the status of entrepreneur-employee-member. The analysis of Coopaname allows us to recognise how this organisation translates its political project into management tools that reconcile a dual logic (managerial and activist logics) and embody the principles of cooperation, solidarity and autonomy. By presenting the functioning of the cooperative and the management systems it has put in place, the case allows for an analysis of the links between political aspirations oriented around an alternative enterprise project and the actual practices of the cooperative and its members.
