Resistance and the "Post-Recognition" Turn in Organizations

Fleming, P. (2016). Resistance and the "Post-Recognition" Turn in Organizations. Journal of Management Inquiry, 25(1), pp. 106-110. doi: 10.1177/1056492615600363


I will draw on the contributions of Courpasson (2016) and Hardy (in press) to reflect on the nature of resistance in contemporary organizations and extend the discussion by focusing on why and how actors might resist today. In particular, I propose that some types of resistance are motivated by what I label post-recognition politics rather than traditional struggles to be recognized, heard, and listened to. Hence the prominent theme of exit, escape, and social independence in emancipatory discourses designed to refuse work and employment today.
