Le paradoxe des intermittents du spectacle : l'art de retourner les obstacles à l'action collective (2003-2006)

Abstract : This research deals with the observation of the  role of French non-profit organization workers, employed or volunteers, operating in the so-called  ?sensitive neighbourhoods?. It aims at identifying the different knowledge and  skills which justified their expertise in situation and ensured its  recognition by the authorities. A special attention is given to the  territorialisation?s process which authorizes these workers to claim for a  position of ?community expert?. Interviews with members are the means to identify the typical situations of the community work in an urban context and the  ethical and technical stakes of the interactions with the inhabitants. Put in relation with recurrent professional debates, they  help to precise the individual gestion of  the personal commitment  required by the action (vocation, gift, militancy, etc.) and the different  conceptions of the community service (care, training, empowerment, etc). The thesis shows how non-profit organisation workers act to contribute to the normalization of the urban area they are operating in. This normalization  has two meanings : 1) to get a better self control of their individual  behaviour by the inhabitants (a sense of normativity)  and 2) to help a  stigmatized urban area to win  the image of a normal neighbourhood (an  image of normality). The thesis enlightens the contemporary process  of professionalization engaged by the community workers of the ?sensitive  neighbourhoods? and its contribution to the formalization of new competences,  leading to the recognition of  new occupations, such as ?social  engineer?.
