Le « consensus » communautaire contre l'intégration intercommunale Séquences et dynamiques d'institutionnalisation de la communauté urbaine de Lille (1964-2003)

Abstract : The beginning of the 2000s was characterized by a wide spread of intercommunal cooperation in France. Most of the new metropolitan institutions, like the old ones which have seen their effective competences increased, are run by collegial executives, gathering municipal representatives from the whole political spectrum. To justify this type of broad coalition, local politicians put forward an alleged « technicity » of urban policy issues – which are claimed to be « apolitical » – and the strengthening of the metropolitan policies it would enable. This work scrutinizes the institutionalization process of the Communauté urbaine of Lille, from its origins in the 1960ies to the formalization of a "consensus" regime, expression used by the metropolitan councilors themselves to qualify their cross-party agreements. The chosen methodology, a historical and micro sociological perspective, sheds light on the “domestication” of the successive governmental reforms by the mayors. The political intercommunal "consensus", far from resulting in the autonomy of the metropolitan policies, thus appears to be the main cause of their ongoing dependency on member-municipalities and of their democratic deficit, keeping them inaccessible for the citizens.
