L'expression territoriale des comportements électoraux au Mali

Abstract : The new millennium places Africa on the international political stage. In Fact, Africa lives the globalization dynamic in accordance with a gradual transition to a pluralistic democracy. However, the democracy underscores the presence of modern State institutions on rural and traditional societies. In the occidental societies the electoral democracy is originate from a community model. This electoral democracy has gradually changed into a democracy which is taking in consideration the individual opinion and the free expression. This question makes sense in African societies. Due to its geographical localization, the Mali was the best African performer until its exceptional crisis in 2012. Is it possible to consider the 2012 occurrences as a breach in the country's history? What is the country political resiliency? This thesis has been started before those events. The thesis was elaborated on two complementary approaches. In fact, the first part is a quantitative approach composed of local maps and national scale circle. The second part is a qualitative approach composed of three arrivals of local "ideal-types". Those approaches highlight the birth of a hybrid political regulation between local elite which are historically following the occidental modern path and the native representation of the power. Despite a decentralized innovative reform, those origin tensions take place in a local scale since the colonial period. Finally, through an electoral behavior prism, the Malian electoral democracy observation represents an original component of the current sociopolitical comprehension.
