Published on Thursday, June 09, 2011 by Karim Hammou


Au-delà des oppositions entre les approches « top down » et « bottom up » de l’action publique, rares sont les travaux questionnant les appropriations des politiques par leurs publics. Les publics des institutions ne constituent pas un ensemble homogène et on peut différencier les attitudes des acteurs sociaux face à la mise en œuvre des politiques dans différents secteurs. On peut faire l’hypothèse que les trajectoires, ressources et propriétés sociales des administrés influent sur les appropriations qu’ils font de l’action publique.
