Circulation de savoirs pluriels et émancipation des acteurs sociaux : le cas d'un observatoire "vivre sa jeunesse" dans une recherche-intervention

Abstract : This thesis is at the crossroads of epistemological, heuristic and praxeological reflections raised by taking into account social demands in education. It comes from a research commissioned by a local authority. It is part of an intervention-research to accompany a political decision in which a « living ones youth » observatory is co-developed. This collaborative item, positioned as a socio-scientific third way between the scientific world and the social world, provokes two types of meetings, between, on one hand, researchers and social actors and on the other hand, policy makers and young people. This thesis studies the process of movement of plural knowledge involved in an intervention-research through its dynamic epistemic, both socio-cognitive and socio-political, order. The theoretical framework is built on the articulation of three components which are the theoretical sociology of translation, the spiral of knowledge and the notion of emancipation. Two field surveys have been carried out among local youth as well as four local council representatives and four young people enlisted in the observatory. The results of this work show an interactive and iterative form of explicit knowledge and tacit knowledge co-construction is made possible by their explanation, their sharing, their continuous interaction and gradual formalization. They also reveal the drawbacks and forces in the co-production of multi-epistemological knowledge, that is to say, which have a different legitimacy of traditional forms of knowledge production with both a social and scientific validity. The emancipatory dimension of such a cognitive process for enlisted contributors is also highlighted, and more specifically, the development of the empowerment of young people and legitimizing their rights into the community.
