    La crise de l’ESB a été interprétée pour une large part comme la conséquence d’un conflit d’intérêt inhérent aux institutions de l’Agriculture. L’article suggère que ce récit dominant est en lui-même le produit de luttes symboliques et qu’il ne dit rien sur les luttes institutionnelles internes à l’Agriculture. Il propose un autre récit, articulé autour du corps des inspecteurs vétérinaires. Promu par le ministère pour maintenir sa domination sectorielle, le corps des inspecteurs vétérinaires a bénéficié des réformes post-critiques en termes de prestige et de pouvoir administratifs. Prolongeant le processus de sectorisation de la sécurité sanitaire des aliments, ces réformes ont toutefois renforcé les chaînes d’interdépendance, d’où le constat d’une victoire inattendue et paradoxale des inspecteurs de la santé publique vétérinaire (ISPV)
