    (VF)L’article étudie, au-delà des conditions structurelles et des facteurs exogènes, la façon dont les stratégies des acteurs contribuent à la stabilisation et à l’ouverture des marchés. La dynamique de marché est appréhendée à travers des actions et réactions stratégiques qui sont le fait de divers acteurs. Le cas étudié est celui de la restructuration de l’industrie de la défense aux Etats-Unis depuis la fin de la Guerre Froide. Il permet de souligner la dimension stratégique de l’action des participants en ne survalorisant pas la stabilité des marchés comme processus.(VA)This article examines the way in which market players’ strategies contribute to stabilize and to open markets, going beyond the study of structural conditions and exogenous factors. Market dynamics are analyzed in terms of the strategic actions and reactions, both stabilizing and destabilizing, of diverse market players. A case study highlights the restructuring of the US defense industry after the end of the Cold War. It highlights the strategic dimension of the action of market players, thus avoiding to overemphasize the stability of markets as processes.
