Nouveaux lieux du commerce et transformation des pratiques de consommation dans les villes algériennes. Étude de cas à El Eulma et Onama/El-Ghazi (Constantine)

Abstract : Since the beginning of the 2000’s, new market areas are quickly growing up at the boundaries of several algerian cities. Although Algeria follows a general trend common in the rest of Maghreb and Middle-East, changes are more violent in counterpart of the 1990’s civil war which insulated society and economy for ten years. Those new market areas partly inspired from european general stores, north-american shopping malls and traditional oriental bazaar offer to customers needs of mass consumption with various foreign wares. Based on investigations carried out in two north-eastern algerian cities, Castantina and El-Eulma, the aim of this paper is to carry on a research about lower and ordinary globalization which narrow the gap between traditional souk bazaar and global trade. For their part, shoppers build new relationships to themselves, other customers or to the wares with new consumering practices and window shopping unseen in Algeria before now. Quick transformations in algerian families and society build up those new consumering practices and improve women’s position.
