Territoire hydrosocial et conflictualité : lecture croisée des arrangements et reconfigurations territoriales associés à l’introduction de projets liés à l’eau

Abstract : This article examines the territorial arrangements and reconfigurations associated with the introduction of water-related projects for irrigation, for new hydraulic infrastructure and for the protection of this resource. The article highlights the relevance of the concept of hydrosocial territory to account for the existence of diverse territorial views within the same area ('territorial pluralism'), and the power relations that this overlapping may entail. The concept of hydrosocial territory often mostly supports a binary understanding of power relations by insisting on their conflictual nature and neglecting other forms of articulation. Thus, we propose a more nuanced reading of the tensions between actors associated with territorial pluralism, based on empirical elements drawn from three doctoral studies. We focus on three aspects: i) the existence of strategic agreements between actors with a priori divergent interests, as revealed by their arguments and discourses; ii) the agentivity of the a priori dominated actors, as revealed by their practices; iii) the way in which the project is inscribed in long-term territorial reconfigurations. These three aspects help to characterise, on one hand, the assumption of a conflictuality inherent in the encounter of dissonant territorial views when a project is introduced and, on the other hand, the importance of the territorial transformations brought about by these projects.
