[fre] Grégoire Rota Graziosi La fragmentation politique, une revue de la littérature. Cet article propose une revue de la littérature théorique abordant la question de la fragmentation politique. Nous présentons une formalisation simplifiée permettant de comparer les hypothèses et les apports des différents modèles théoriques recensés. L'hétérogénéité des électeurs-contribuables motive la fragmentation politique, alors que les économies d'échelle dans la production du bien public ou la mutualisation des risques économiques favorisent l'unité politique. Cet article se conclut par une analyse normative du découpage politique. [eng] The Political Fragmentation : a Survey.The purpose of this paper is to provide a survey on political fragmentation. We present a simple formalization which allows the confrontation of different assumptions choosen by the authors. The heterogeneity of voters induces political fragmentation, while scale economies in public good's production or risks mutualization favors political unity. A normative approach of the political fragmentation concludes this article.
