RECOMPOSITION DES TERRITOIRES POLITIQUES ET GOUVERNANCE URBAINE : LE CAS DE LA VILLE DE BAMAKO (MALI)

Abstract : Is the city of Bamako producing a political change? The present thesis aims at giving an answer to this seemingly common question of political sciences. Based on a survey conducted during the elections of 2007, I intend to approach the theoretical and methodological aspects of a study which attempts to explain the low electoral turnout in Bamako. Considering the territory first as an aggregate of quantitative data (objective territory) and then as a social construction shaped by individuals (subjective territory), I intend to get back to the inputs of a socio-geographical approach, for a clear understanding of the reasons of the low voter turnout. "Politics" appears both as the result of an identification of territorial issues as well as a series of defined themes (e.g. voting at elections; globalization; etc.) showing some distinct aspects of the territory's influence over the politicization of individuals. Throughout the thesis, I shall draw from directive and semi-directive interviews so as to figure out the Bamakois' sense of democracy.
