    I don't agree - I don't think it's composition ou fonctionnement, and I don't recognize it as a set expression, so the agency (tout court) entry would be the place to look. That said, I think the existing section of the entry is basically correct but could perhaps use a few more suggestions, things like capacité/puissance d'agir, auto-détermination, autonomie etc. as suggested in threads?
