Le management du territoire par le projet : des limites de l'instrumentation gestionnaire : le cas de la Guadeloupe

Abstract : The territory is brought into the public debate since the eighties associated with the implementation of decentralization policies. However, since the nineties, public policy changes have given rise to a territory sometimes support, sometimes streamlining tool of collective action at the local level. The territory is seen as a construction (Gosse and Sprimont, 2008) under which the use of multiple actors with diverse legitimacy or sometimes potential conflict (Mendez and Mercier, 2006) is a challenge for collective action territorialized. Thus, the prevalence of an actantial reading of territory leads to an interpenetration of action spaces of intersecting economic issues (with employment as special purpose), political (distribution of powers to local space) and organizational (search for optimal coordination).It follows that a form of hybridization [Berthet et al, 2002] is built as a model for the conduct of collective territorialized action by inviting to a combined action private and public actors, with governance as a method of driving and managing territorialized resources. Looking for an “effective” territory through the use of management tools updates the territorial issue in the context of complexity of a complexification of democracy and of a performative target of public action. As such, the territory project is one of the emblematic instruments of territorial actors mobilization research and of democracy strengthening in a newly decentralized republic. The company is also at the center of stakeholders, invited on the territorial scene.This assumed interweaving between management and policy, illustrates itself by the call for management as "natural ally" in order to mobilize the actors many called. There remains that a conceptual approach that transposes management at the territorial level, highlights specifies and, critical points. Thus, management as a collective territorialized action lever, fits into paradoxical records that impede the compatibility between management and policy spaces.Drawing on the example of Guadeloupe and using the sociology of translation, we seek to show how the project can be posited as an mobilization instrument and deploy itself in a non-hierarchical framework.
