1. Hornsby, Gilpatrick Deshone. Social Responsibility in Events.

Degree: School of Hotel and Restaurant Administration, 2012, Oklahoma State University

In recent history, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has come to the forefront of many conversations and surveys in the event industry, yet no study has been completed to determine the feasibility CSR as an event industry initiative. For event planners, several studies report that CSR is a top priority, but site selection literature has not reported CSR as a factor in selecting a destination. The lack of CSR in the site selection process is also seen in the current marketing strategies of the supplier population. This researcher examines the CSR perceptions of 44 corporate event planners and 41 destination management organization representatives to examine if CSR is currently a major decision making factor in the event industry. Data were collected via qualitative and quantitative methods. Through mixed method data analysis, this study found that there is not a single definition of CSR for the event industry, but there is practical evidence that an organization having a CSR definition affects the respondents CSR perception. The study also found that while the perception of CSR was positive for both populations, neither population felt that it had a great effect on the higher functions of the event planning process. Finally, the study found that the respondent's perception of the supply/demand relationship is possibly affected by CSR. The limitations of this study and future research are also discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Scott-Halsell, Sheila (advisor), Slevitch, Lisa (committee member), Ruby, Steve (committee member).

3. Blazsin, Hortense. De l’ingénierie de la raison à la raison pratique : Vers une nouvelle approche de la sécurité : From engineered reason to practical reason : Towards a new vision of safety.

Degree: Docteur es, Sciences et génie des activités à risques, 2014, Paris, ENMP

Couplage fort VS faible, sécurité réglée VS sécurité gérée, ingénierie VS expertise terrain… Confrontées à des environnements complexes et incertains, les organisations maîtrisent les risques en oscillant entre contrôle rigide et souplesse face aux aléas. Au coeur de cette tension se trouve l'individu, capable de déterminer lorsque les règles ne suffisent plus et de s'adapter. Cela implique de considérer l'individu non plus comme un facteur, de défaillance ou même de fiabilité, mais comme un sujet autonome, capable de prendre des décisions raisonnées et éclairées. Mobilisant la philosophie pratique de Paul Ricoeur, la thèse construit la notion de « sécurité pratique ». Elle propose de préserver la sécurité grâce à la raison pratique des individus plutôt que la rationalité des organisations, de mobiliser la volonté plutôt que l'obéissance. La thèse présente la démonstration de la pertinence et de la possibilité bien réelle d'une telle approche de la sécurité, en l'étayant par des données terrain recueillies au sein d'une grande entreprise du secteur du gaz.

Tight VS loose coupling, managed VS enforced safety, engineering VS field knowledge... As they are now confronted with uncertain, complex environments, organizations manage safety by oscillating between rigid control and the flexibility required to manage hazards. At the heart of this tension rests the individual, who is able to determine whether following the rule is enough or if some level of adaptation is required. Yet this implies that the individual is no longer considered as a factor, neither of failure nor of reliability, but as a person who is autonomous and in a capacity to make enlightened, reasoned decisions. Building on Paul Ricoeur's practical philosophy, we develop the notion of « practical Safety ». It defends the idea that safety can be preserved by relying on people's practical reason rather than on organizational rationality, by mobilizing individual will rather than obedience. The PhD demonstrates that such an approach is both relevant and anchored in reality, using field data gathered within a gas distribution company.
