Les acteurs de la gestion du social

Abstract : This thesis stems from the desire to transcend the theories of "social control" through an all-embracing analysis of social work and social policy. This analysis consists of a demonstration, drawing on the sociology of action, of how the actors, in their conflictual relations, have constructed and continue to construct forms of social management. The first part attempts to define a theoretical basis for this approach which, refusing traditional divisions, seeks to link the macro-social level, where social determinisms and individuals' actions interweave, with the micro-social level of the "habitus", where "interiorisation" and "appropriation" interact. The second part outlines a sociological reading of the historical forms of social management, showing how each type of society has produced a specific configuration of attitudes towards, and handling of, poverty and marginality. The third part proposes a typology of the different "habitus" to be found among the specialists of social management. questioning on how these "habitus" are constructed leads to the idea that the elements blended from different dimensions of the historical traditions of social action are reprocessed in depth by individuals through the knowledge they can call upon and their reflection on their own experience.
