Groups of employers that some large companies rely on to recruit in “short-term” occupations, or the use by companies of these intermediary mechanisms, need to be questioned and characterized. It should be done while “diversifying” the workforce, but without changing direct recruitment rules and practices.
In other words, and to enlarge the line, everything must be done through a neoliberal “employment” of public action in this field of having any kind of job. This shows that in the governmental regime, intermediation is in many cases mainly destined for commercial inclusion. It uses professional integration and the integration possibilities of its buyers to its detriment.
The triangulation of the education-employment relationship can be associated with the general trend put forward at the beginning of the series: socializing, even disciplining, by preparing for forms of employment and employment conditions that have been permanently removed from the standard wage.
Rather than being a tool to combat unemployment and insecurity, intermediation may structurally represent another intermediate stage between unemployment and quality employment. Accompanying in companies, or by educational institutions, is an additional step within the “path of integration” to its multiple configurations and hazards.
Through the income received, it will also be similar to other forms of intermediation, despite the potential positive effects on buyers. Like temporary employment companies, the workforce needs to be recruited and provided.
In this sense, intermediation will strengthen the under-management by providing ready-to-use skills to employers without having to bear the cost of production.
The four contributions in this paper put this general hypothesis to the test: both confirming it, giving it substance, and observable depending on the devices, each with its own history. This makes it possible to contribute to perspective through variations.
Socio-historical and localized analysis is therefore privileged. Research shows some of the potential for intermediation on Economic Cooperation, first of all, in terms of collective governance.
The analysis focuses on a form of local productive ecosystem that organizes cooperation between social and solidarity economy structures, public and private actors.
It is intended to mediate through a sectoral approach that aims to go beyond pooling resources and create new records of regional cooperation.
It outlines the political and economic processes at work and examines the forms and effects of intermediation on the local labor market.
The benefit of the mediation put into practice here is that it is considered and reappropriated locally, on the one hand, and in terms of a system of actors that cannot be reduced to the support provided on the other.
It should be said that this double localized approach at the regional and sectoral level has led to insistence on the detailed nature of the results obtained by the authors.
Indeed, in this configuration, it shows how mediation allows its development in the service of regional development towards eco-social goals.
However, it is necessary to expand it with a precise analysis of its long-term effects, especially on professionals. Evaluation of their effects draws primarily from the literature on placement and agency schemes, which focuses on measuring their capacity to provide employment or return to work.
It is also necessary to identify the social conditions and possibilities of transferability of such mediation use to other regions and other sectors. Because there is a struggle against a hundred-year-old taboo.
Thus it represents an updated contemporary form of this political, economic and social legacy. Today, the actors coming together are expected to act as a counterweight to the neoliberal logic of employment at all costs.
