La « disparition de Tuvalu » : analyse des discours autour d'une mise sur l'agenda

Abstract : This paper offers to briefly analyse the emergence of various discourses on the possible disappearing of the territory of the small island State of Tuvalu (due to climate change and sea level rise) with the use of the theory of public policies and the concept of agenda setting. It will focus on the production of scientific discourses and their translation in the media and political fields. The case of Tuvalu is analysed at various scales, whether at the international level (such as UN arenas and academic research field) or at the regional level (bilateral relation with New Zealand regarding aid or migration policies). The goal is to understand the territory as an object of formulation of scenarios and of stands in a competitive space. Thus, the various strategies and other preoccupations of stakeholders, using the symbolic power of the territory, will be highlighted.
