Les jardins partagés, terreau de participation citoyenne : de l'appropriation de l'espace public à la construction de commun(s). Regards croisés entre la France et l'Italie.

Abstract : This research addresses the multifaceted roll-out of politics in shared urban gardens. The empirical survey highlights the customs and discourses that develop in these gardens as an ordinary expression of politics. This work focuses on two sites that were investigated (one located in Rome and the other in Strasbourg), to feed the research with a comparative approach. This work is characterized, among other issues, by the attention paid to the links between redefinition of democracy and its necessary entanglement with ecological issues. Our key assumption is that shared urban gardens are laboratories of local and practical application of participation and contribute to the invention of new models of development that respect ecological principles. The demonstration is built around two main parts. The first, dedicated to the study of politics in urban garden associations, analyses the forms of commitment that are deployed there. We first establish the profiles of commitment and the politicization processes of the members. Then, we analyze the ordinary environmentalism as a particular form of the commitment within the gardens which underlines the possible and necessary connection between ecological issues and citizen participation. The second part of the thesis points out the place of these initiatives in their respective local contexts and their relations with the institutions with which they interact. We adress how these initiatives take place on the territory, as "spontaneous" participatory processes, how they negotiate with local institutions their actions and their presence on these public spaces, but also how they are structured in time. After having highlighted the dynamics at work within these organizations and the differences between these two territories, in Rome and Strasbourg, we emphasize the main elements of comparative analysis and then articulate the reflection on participatory approaches - more or less institutionalized - with the notion of common(s). The ‘commons’ is considered as an operational category from the Roman field, but also as a theoretical notion that allows to think a new political horizon beyond the market / State alternative in broader context.
