Le sport en débat : démocratie participative et politique sportive municipale : l'exemple des Etats généraux du Sport de Strasbourg

Abstract : In relation to the renewal of local governance procedure, some participative debates on sport issues have taken place over the past few years. By reducing the gap between citizens and representatives spatially and emotionally, this participative democracy actions has targeted to upgrade a representative democracy that is said to be in crisis. In Strasbourg, while local democracy was increasingly more shown as a new tool for public action, the new municipal council elected in 2008 staged the “Etat Généraux du Sport (EGS)”. Therefore, it started an innovative dynamics of democracy in the sport. Based on a participative observation and a range of interviews, this research work analyses not only the local participative plans aimed at creating a new municipal sport policy but also the characteristics of the actors involved in the consultation processes. It highlights social and political issues and enables to better understand elected members’ strategy in public debates and how they manage the voice of the citizens’ who have an interest in sport issues. Top down democracy – towards elected members – and bottom up democracy– through the acknowledgment of civic expertise – are combined in order to define the participative local setup which gathers several logics.
