La discrimination économique est-elle soluble dans la complexité ?
The evolution of the economic theories of discrimination exhibits a clear tendency towards an increased complexity. This contribution aims at examining and discussing this tendency. It contains three sections. The first deals with the neo-classical current, and shows how recent theories propose representations which move away from the study of simple and traditional labour market adjustments, and finally include the consideration of ?identity?. The second section focuses on the ?labour market segmentation? current and its evolution: this includes research on multiple and changing segmentation as well as recent interest on ?multi-discrimination?. The third section discusses the meaning and limits of these evolutions towards more complexity, which may dilute the stakes and blur the priorities. It identifies some recent work on the dynamic dimension of the labour market and on trajectories as relevant for restoring priorities in the field of complex discrimination processes. JEL classification codes: J15, J16, J7.
