Résumé:

The purpose of this article is to assess to what extent Community Exchange Systems (CES), and particularly the Grenoble's SEL (Systèmes d'Echange Local) which are counterparts to the Anglo-Saxon Local Exchange Trading Systems (LETS), constitute an alternative to neoliberal rationalisation. Our analysis is grounded in the French convention theory (Economie des conventions) and feeds on a long-term action research conducted on CES. This research uncovered trends in institutional isomorphism as well as strategies for resistance developed by local actors.
