    [eng] Proximity and capturing the regulator - The case of the banana producers in Martinique The European banana market generates regulated advantages. These advantages (called rent) are appropriated by producers by the mean of their influence on the regulator. These strategies of capture result from a collective process. The aim of this paper is to understand how the producers lead this collective action. The analysis relies both on the contributions of the economics of proximity and the economics of regulation. An empirical illustration is provided by the case of the banana producers in Martinique. [fre] Le marché européen de la banane promeut une «rente réglementée» dont les modes d'appropriation consistent en une activité d'influence du régulateur ou de capture de la réglementation. Ces stratégies de capture relèvent d'une procédure d'action collective. L'objet de cet article est de comprendre de quelle manière les producteurs mènent cette action collective. L'analyse s'appuie sur une articulation entre les apports de l'économie de proximités et de l'économie de la réglementation. Une illustration empirique est fournie à partir de l'étude du comportement des producteurs martiniquais.
