The Centre for the Sociology of Organisations (CSO) – a joint research unit affiliated with Sciences Po and the CNRS – is an academic centre that built its reputation on organisational studies and has progressively broadened its scope. Today, the centre is well-known for research in the fields of economic sociology, the sociology of organisations, of public action, of professions, of social movements, and of law.

The centre is directed by Olivier Borraz (Director) and Sophie Dubuisson-Quellier (Deputy Director).

The research carried out at the CSO covers a wide range of subjects, which are often approached from a comparative perspective and maintain a conscientious familiarity with the changes taking place in contemporary society.

Research at the CSO is organized into 5 research programmes that aim to explore their subjects within a sociological approach:

- Law, Norms, and Regulation

- Work, Employment, and Professions

- Governance and Economic Organizations

- Knowledge, Science, and Expertise

- Public Action and Transformations of the State
