Abstract: In this presentation, I’ll draw on my research about Posts and Telecommunications reform policies in France during the 1980s to present a bourdieusian field theory approach to policy analysis. I’ll show how the logic of the specific field of this policy produces it and explain its transformations. I will focus, in this presentation, on prosopographical data analyzed through geometrical data analysis.
