CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Local and Regional governments are clearly now coping with deep transformations and this article questions the reality and scope of remote territorial control forms. Based on the study of different programs promoted since the mid-2000s in various areas of public policy, it argues that a new form of government appears, which is grounded on the trust that actors still have towards the State and their blindness on the difficulty that this one now encounters to gather enough consistent and accurate funding or to have a real action on Territories. Can we then talk about this as “steering” while central administrative actors are condemned to strategies based on cobbled processes and on objectives which are actually retrospectively reconstructed?
