Politique et pouvoirs locaux dans un cirque : Cilaos (1945 à 2001)

Abstract : This thesis is based on documentary researches in the Departmental archives of Reunion (Newspapers and local administrative documents). It is the first study over a long length on the political life in Cilaos, last municipality born on the French island of Reunion in 1965. On this specific territory, that is the “circus” of Cilaos, the political actors have a key role for its development. In this site, where ramparts form a political arena, all the blows are allowed (fraud, unlikely alliance, favoritism). It is so an ideal laboratory for a study of the evolution of its local elections (and its morals) and of the socio-economic development by these actors. One of them is a play major of this game of powers, dubbed the "Lion", Irénée Accot. He works in the political emancipation of his municipality in front of his city-mother Saint-Louis. Upon his death, his ideological inheritance is so hard to carry for his potential dolphins. After a period of adjournment, one of them manages to reconnect with this glorious last, Paul Técher.
