Organizing for trust in Markets : On certification, markets and organization
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper reports from a research project on certification as an important mechanism for global order in contemporary society. The project is based on an interest in how and why the practice of certification arises and how it develops. However, the kind of certification that we have investigated proved to be a phenomenon with a complex context, and in order to understand the development of certification practices, that context has to be understood as well. Certification proved to be closely connected to issues of market construction, market organization and trust in markets and organizations – and those issues will be touched upon as well.
