Développement durable et contribution de la méthode EBP en sciences sociales : une ébauche
Are scientific arguments used for analysing "sustainable development" ? This issue is at the core of the EBP-biosoc research project of which we present a few aspects on the use of scientific knowledge through "Evidence Based Policy" method. The use of such a framework in social sciences requires taking account of pluralism of approaches in order to have an idea of the validity spectrum of the possible empirical knowledge to be exploited. The notion of research programme of Lakatos can give an account of pluralism inside a given discipline. This contribution gives a presentation of EBP method and proposes a sketching out of its application to social sciences through an attempt to characterise the regulation school theory with the Lakatosian concepts, which gives clues about the type of empirical knowledge that can be expected from this framework. Al last, this is applied to the link between agriculture and economic cohesion.
