This paper provides a microeconomic framework of territorial dynamics through the comprehension of the processes of coordination between local actors. Neo-institutional economics as well as economic sociology approaches restore the role of social structures as constraint and resource for individual action. By dealing specifically with the strategic formation of social links, network economics allows to bear simultaneously social dilemmas in collective action, global social structure and individual choices of action. The empirical implementation of such a framework is demanding, and thus constitutes its main limit. However, its application to the specific context of public territorial action in rural areas, as addressed in this paper, confirms its attractiveness for the renewal of research questions in territorial governance, as for the relation between formal devices?like regional natural park in France- and local actor networks.
