Gouvernements intercommunaux et ressources politiques : l'identité territoriale pour énoncer des priorités d'action publique ?

Abstract : In the field of analysis of public action, although the notion of identity is not mobilized as a predictor, the contemporary phenomena of territorial public policies show that the symbolic function of local government does not dissolve completely either in a "style" national government or in the "path dependency" of state institutions or categorical. The author wishes to take seriously the hypothesis that the territorial identity (as told and used in the political field) can be a resource in structuring the statement of priorities for public action. A first descriptive part presents three case studies seeking to pinpoint the identity issues involved, and a second section summarizes the main enigmas of this equation identity. Finally, three results are brought to discussion: the paths of institutions are not only statocentrés but they also depend on historic moldings political system of each local variable identity is often mobilized in tournaments for public action to prioritize areas reference to political competition, and the speeches on the community interest in the form of stories designed to enchant the missions of general interest. Taken together, the three results can be seen that the territorial identity permeates the play of players and forced the political dynamic favoring a differentiated production of meaning and showing a fragmentation of the representations attached to the exercise of democracy.
