Keynote Speakers

P CastelPatrick Castel
"He is a Research fellow at Sciences Po, at the Center for the Sociology of Organizations, Paris, France. He is also a member of the Liepp (Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies) (Sciences Po). Before joining Sciences Po in January 2007, he worked as research fellow at the Lyons Cancer Center (Centre Léon Bérard) (2002-2006). A theoretical framework, composed of three perspectives, underlies his research: the sociology of organizations, the sociology of health professions, and the sociology of knowledge. Two threads run through his research: on the one hand, the organization of medical activity and the rationalization processes at work, and on the other, design and implementation processes of public policies in the healthcare field. For the former, he focuses particularly on how cancer patients’ treatment is organized, the processes of creating and applying recommendations for clinical practice, and the way clinical and transnational research is organized. Since 2013, he has been a member of the scientific advisory board of the Cnamts (Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs Salariés). He is member of the editorial committee of Sciences sociales et santé. He published articles in journals such as Organization science, Social studies of science, Social science & medicine, Revue française de sociologie and Sociologie du travail. With Henri Bergeron, he coauthored Sociologie politique de la santé (2014, Presses universitaires de France)."
