Politiques et conflits territorialisés à propos du séjour irrégulier des étrangers. Comparaison de configurations en France et en Espagne

Abstract : The settlement of undocumented immigrants is challenging state's policies in France and Spain. The irregular stay of migrants is usually analysed through a functionalist lens which acknowledges the failure of control and deterrence policy against unauthorized migration, or, underlines their function as a labour force or in vote-catching arguments in political speeches. This research seeks to implement a sociological approach to understand precisely the political incidence of undocumented migrants' settlement. By using a local perspective, it appears that the framework of exclusion designed by states and European policies gives way to diverse local configurations in which multilevel social and political interactions and the involvement of private actors, contribute to the local policy-making process. The political control and deterrence of unauthorized migrants raise local contention in favour of the legalization or the improvement of these immigrants' living conditions. These social movements use the territory to challenge states' political framework and reshape statehood and citizenship. These contentious interactions modify the borders between the political field and social movements: on the one hand, they lead to reinforce their own autonomy or, on the other hand, cooperation and transfers are blurring the limit between social spaces. Furthermore, contentious interactions affect the relations between protesters by redesigning alliances, competition and the distribution of power.
