Circuits courts agro-alimentaires et clivages politiques : le cas des produits palmipèdes landais

Abstract : Over the last fifteen years, research has generated detailed analyses of the market relations involved in short food supply chains. However, the interactionist paradigm that has dominated this work has led to a neglect of the power relations and political conflicts that continue to structure the agricultural industries involved, reducing them to “games” that are never entirely stabilized. Drawing on a study of the duck products industry, and guided by an institutionalist and constructivist analytical framework, this article addresses a structural conflict that short supply chains have caused in the Landes department, the contrasting roles—inclusive or exclusive—attributed to it, and the impact of this political division on three contemporary issues: biosecurity, labeling, and public assistance for new entrants. Whereas an avian flu crisis in 2015–16 initially seemed to be “dealing new cards” to local producers and thereby enhancing their position within the industry, since then long-existing institutions and power relations have contributed to reinstating a division of labor concerning production, processing, and distribution.
