Soutenir le changement institutionnel en agriculture avec l'artefact médiateur "qualité" : le cas d'une démarche collective de transition agroécologique

Abstract : The agroecological transition advocated by public policies in France constitutes the starting point of the questioning developed in this PhD dissertation. Our work focuses more specifically on a public device that aims to stimulate collective agroecological projects developed by farmers and partner organizations on territorial level, the Group of Economic and Environmental Interest (GIEE). In our case, a cooperative has initiated such a collective action aiming the development of pulses, whose agronomic, environmental and food advantages fully correspond to objectives of the agroecological transition. The case study examines the role of social interactions in updating the actors’ thinking and acting modes as they are required by the agroecological transition. This transition is understood here as an institutional change. Following the work recently developed in the field of deliberative economics, the thesis examines the power of collective deliberation to provoke this actualization by eliciting expression of values. The originality of the thesis is to mobilize research developed in the field of historical-cultural psychology which shows that human beings have the capacity to overcome the disturbances encountered in their activity and to maintain a new relationship with this by using a mediating artifact. A specific artifact, the concept of quality, was thus mobilized in collective deliberations carried out with farmers belonging to three GIEE and consumers about a number of characteristics of pulses.
