Abstract : This piece presents a perspective on politics which envisages it as stemming from values and their confrontation around the structuration of socio-economic activity. Values are central firstly because they determine what social actors consider to be fair and right. Secondly, values Have social effects because, through the development and the promotion of ‘value hierarchies’, certain individual, collective or public actors work to change or reproduce the institutions that delimit, but also render possible and predictable, durable socio‐economic relations. Indeed, it is value hierarchies which provide the basis for the political identities that In turn fuel and legitimate collective and public action. This perspective is illustrated using empirical examples from the agri‐food industry in general and its milk sector and local food chain components in particular.
