L’action de la personne et la dynamique de la société : à travers le cas des écoles d'enfants migrants à Beijing

Abstract : This study focuses on the legalization process of schools created by migrant workers of rural origin in order to educate their children. Unlike researchers who have tried so far to give a factual explanation of the phenomenon, we aim to take this case as a laboratory to shed a light on the following question: how do private initiatives emerge to become projects embodying a common good and how does the common good evolve into a public good and reform the governance of the City? Morebriefly, we want to clarify the role of the person in social change. Our research seeks to demonstrate what is actually happening in China, in particular the dynamic role of private initiatives in the political and institutional evolutions of this country, taking as example directors of schools for migrant children. On the theoretical side, the study was conducted to test a socioanthropological theory of the person, beyond the usual dichotomy between the individual and the collectivity, and see how the person, with his or her instituant and ethical capacities, participate in the emergence and construction of the public good and the evolution of the City
