La démocratie de l'entre-soi

La démocratie de l'entre-soi

An increasing divide between the people and the elites, social and sexualised inequalities, the weakness of participative democracy, the rejection of the European project in favour of nationalism, the primacy of intimacy in the construction of political involvement and civic connections, uncertainties about the socialism and liberalism of tomorrow…

In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF asks what all these signals tell us about the evolution of democracy in France.

They suggest that what is "common" is no longer based on what is public, but on what is private. That politics is now evolving in communitarian spaces of all kinds, family, religious denominations, political parties, oligarchies… That this confusion in repertoires is met with a social fragmentation that is widely accepted, in spite of the celebrations of republicanism and calls for national unity.

This is the basis for the elaboration of a democracy of private interests, which breaks with the principle of separation between public and private space that has been the foundation for democracy since the French and American revolutions.
