Too often, governance falls short of the ideals established through reflections on RRI. Yet, a reflexive governance model has emerged in recent years in scientific debates. This model tries to focus on the effects of actors’ commitment in shared cooperative actions so as to create the conditions for accumulating new knowledge through the collective experimentation of solutions. These reflexive mechanisms for the self-confrontation of knowledge and the self-assessment of norms constitute a framework for collective action that allows for a better understanding of the contribution of networks and partnerships in the production of research and innovation.
This book recalls the genesis of such a reflexive point of view in order to develop the strengths of the model and to show the fruitfulness of its application in the field of RRI.
