La fabrique de la crise : que se passe t-il à l’intérieur du groupe sur le raid polaire ?

Abstract : This paper presents a case study of a polar traverse (logistical transport over the ice in Antarctica) during a crisis situation encountered. The aim of this research is to consider the understanding of the crisis situation through the Powley (2009) model of resilience activation. In February 2013, when the traverse returns from Concordia, the gasoil (used for heating and transportation) begins to freeze. Through a comprehensive approach, a reconstruction of the crisis situation was traced with the collaboration of the eight raid members involved in the situation. The results revealed a collective awareness that this was an unanticipated, unforeseen situation. Exotic solutions were provided by the most novices through the sharing of their diverse experiences. Questions of training, of contradictory debate, have fuelled the discussion around the frames of thought preventing.
