The literature reviewed in this chapter reveals two major tensions. Analytically, different theories tend to focus on either structure or agency. In addition, two fields of activity that relate to each other have been identified: politics and knowledge production. This section elaborates on those two tensions and introduces some analytical concepts that will be used to study them.
