Regulation by trial: management tools and co-regulation in the french movie industry

Thesis defended on the 16th of december at 2:30 pm, at HEC Paris Porte de Champerret, 6 – 14 Avenue de la Porte de Champerret, 75017, Paris.


The empirical context for this work concerns the changes in the movie industry due to the NTIC. We study the collective regulation process of the sector by industry stakeholders and the CNC (National Center for Cinema). We look at two phenomena. We study the debates in the press during the 2012-2014 period. Second, we look at the types of management tools used by the CNC as the organization in charge of regulating the French movie industry. We propose to represent the regulation process in the French movie industry as the organisation and evolution of trials to which actors of the sector participate. This co-regulation process is seen here as both framed and emergent. We study the role of management tools, especially statistical indicators in this co-regulation process. We build a co-regulation model based on the trial notion, allowing us to illustrate the risks linked to the changes occurring in the industry. In the regular functioning of the model, critics can be formulated an integrated to the trial system and allow for its adaptation. The risk linked to NTIC is characterized by the possibility of questioning the evaluation principles at the very foundation of the trial system.
