Hétérogénéité du travail et développement en Côte d'Ivoire: une analyse à partir des dynamiques productives et spatiales


  • Naima Pagès


This paper deals with the foundation of labour heterogeneity in Côte d'Ivoire, in the case of enterprises by questioning the insertion process in the international economy and in the case of small productive units by analysing the insertion process in the local economy. The study uses detailed survey datasets collected from 1998 to 2000, for enterprises and urban small productive units in Abidjan and several secondary cities. It shows that labour heterogeneity is the result of actors' coordination modalities under uncertainty and of productive and spatial discontinuities in the case of a rent-oriented accumulation regime in crisis.
