    (english) The aim of this work is to propose a critical analysis of the recent research works on the Senegalese associations in Italy. First, the main socio-economic characteristics of the Senegalese migration are described. Second, the literature review on Senegalese associations in Italy focus on the main approaches and conceptual tools applied, the suggested classifications, the most relevant themes developed (the governance and the leadership structure, the network of relationships in which associations are involved). Then, the main results of the most recent studies on the topic are summarized. In conclusion, some research gaps and possible directions for future analysis are suggested such as the role of associations in providing informal social protection to members, and a deeper analysis of the impact of associations’ projects aimed at the production of local public goods in the country of origin. _________________________________ (français)Le présent document est une analyse critique des recherches récentes sur le phénomène associatif parmi les migrants sénégalais en Italie. La première partie se compose d’une présentation synthétique des travaux menés sur l’associationnisme en Italie ainsi que du cadre socio-économique de la migration sénégalaise. Dans la seconde partie, la revue de littérature sur l’associationnisme sénégalais en Italie est tout d’abord menée en faisant un focus sur les approches et instruments conceptuels employés, les classifications proposées, les thèmes les plus importants abordés, à savoir la structure de gouvernance et de leadership des associations, les systèmes de relation dans lesquels elles s’inscrivent. Enfin, les résultats obtenus par les récentes études empiriques sont résumés. En conclusion, des questions de recherche et de possibles pistes de travail encore à explorer sont proposées, telles que le rôle des organisations des migrants dans la protection sociale des associés et une analyse plus approfondie de l’impact des interventions des associations dans la production de biens publics locaux dans le pays d’origine.
