L'Intelligence territoriale dans le champ des sciences de l'information et de la communication.

Abstract : French-language discourse in information and communication sciences often tends to mire itself in endless discussions of complexity, constructivism, and semiotics. One of the reasons why recent work is so interesting is precisely that it takes complexity as a categorical given and explores how it manifests itself in the territory. For example, the case of the Bastia port expansion project studied by Julien Angelini leads to the conclusion that public debate is how territorial intelligence emerges. In this case, the expression "territorial intelligence", as vague and polysemous as it may seem, also reveals power. It is the association of intelligence, in all its possible forms, with belonging to a territory, also in all its possible forms. Putting a territorial intelligence approach into practice usually means a comprehensive, qualitative, and factual study characterized by participant observation and mainly based on tangible traces of information production, as in the Bastia port expansion project. Another study on the participation of the citizens of Bordeaux in the micro-decisions involved in constructing a tramway system illustrates participatory democracy being put into practice as a communication tool in a territorial development project. This paper proposes to compare concepts from information and communication sciences with field studies in order to situate issues of territorial intelligence and the challenges they raise at the intersection of geography, anthropology, history, economy, sociology, and political science. All these fields deal with the classic set of issues from information and communication sciences: how to establish relationships and therefore trust, facilitate access to data, circulate information, communicate, and interact.
