Perspectives d'une citoyenneté extraterritoriale, limites des politiques publiques à l'étranger : accompagnement et rayonnement des Français de Londres

Abstract : France's international presence embodied by the citizens living abroad is an asset for the nation-state. Their supervision encompasses multiple political issues. These are revealed by the public policies applied outside the national territory to support the French population living abroad and to strengthen French influence throughout the world. Political depiction of expatriation highlight its advantages and risks in an international context where the identity carried by the nation-state is challenged. The supervision of French citizens abroad symbolizes the political modernity that is projected outside the territory by the transposition of the French model. This thesis discusses the representations developed by french citizens living abroad towards these supervision measures. Those measures belong to a modern and universalist conception of citizenship. Therefore, we propose an approach that confronts this conception with the citizen's representations and practices in an extraterritorial context. This analysis is based on a corpus of documents emanating from multiple sources, articulated to produce a critical analysis of the deployment and application of public policies abroad. We apply this analysis to electoral representations and educational systems abroad as well as to the public policies that contribute to the development of such representations. Our approach is conceived to embrace both the globality of the policies and at the same time the particularities that emerge at the local scale. French citizens in London constitute a singular example of these emerging particularities. We consider the emergence of citizen practices as the result of incipient representations that do not tend to resonate with the range of rights conferred by the nation-state.
