Gouverner par l’accompagnement. Quand l’État professionnalise les associations employeuses.

Abstract : Public authority has many tools to govern non-profit organizations. In this article, we leave aside the forms of "hard government" to focus on a softer, yet effective, form: "accompaniment government". To illustrate this concept, we consider the example of the French Local Accompaniment Facility (DLA in French), which is a public policy that offers management advice to employing associations in order to professionalize them. The implementation of this system is completely outsourced and is carried out by associations, for associations, with associative consultants. Although the public authority seems to disapear, it continues to oversee the process and sets objectives that are well followed. DLA pushes associations to structure their work, to be more concerned about employment, and to develop private and commercial resources to save it. Without any injunction, the device smoothly plays a role of accelerator of managerial mutations imposed by their environment.
