Abstract

La diversité des connotations attachées à la notion (ou aux notions) de gouvernance ne pouvait manquer de susciter l’appétit des chercheurs désireux de renouveler leurs outils d’analyse face à un monde en mutation accélérée (mondialisation, déréglementation, rapports entre puissances, décentralisation, …). La gouvernance est une notion qui a pris en deux décennies une importance considérable et fait florès dans les discours politiques et scientifiques. Ce document fait l’état des lieux sur les différentes approches et théories faites de ce concept, sous ses multiples domaines et disciplines d’application et depuis divers lieux. Si la notion de gouvernance prouve d’indéniables qualités stratégiques et politiques, son usage sans précaution dans l’analyse scientifique peut se révéler périlleux. For several years, Governance has become a concept arousing the interest of economists and of the political community. Since twenty years, it has taken a major importance and it is at the center of political and scientific speeches. In a changing world, researchers have to renew their analysis tools on this topic (globalization, deregulation, decentralization, etc). This document focuses on the approaches and theories of governence. The concept of governance presents strategic and political qualities, but its use without precaution in the scientific analysis may be perilous.
