By reviewing the literature on practices of resistances in social sciences, organization studies, and communication, this essay aims to show how a communicative relationality perspective anchored in the constitutive communication approach (CCO) is relevant to exploring the large phenomenon of resistances. We define resistances as a set of relational and communicative practices that seek individual and/or collective liberation against/through/within diverse hegemonic powers perceived as constraining by one or several individuals. This set of relational practices enacts (and are enacted by) various degrees of organizationality that a communicative approach helps highlight. Our conceptualization of practices of resistances inspired by emergent definitions of both communication and organizations opens avenues to create original and engaged empirical studies.
