    Le territoire est un ensemble social, la démocratie locale peut jouer un rôle structurant et dynamisant dans cette construction. Elle est un champ d’expérimentation dans les processus d’innovations territoriales. De quelle manière et avec quels acteurs, la démocratie locale contribue au développement du territoire ? Une lecture de la participation citoyenne s’impose aujourd’hui. Une interprétation historique est nécessaire pour comprendre l’évolution de cet ensemble social. Il s’agit aussi d’identifier l’évolution des conditions de la « bonne gestion » dans laquelle l’offre institutionnelle de la participation, aujourd’hui, a pris une place essentielle. The territory is a social system. As such, the "local democracy" can play a structuring and instigating role in the construction and the evolution of this micro- system. "Local democracy" is a field of experimentation in the processes of territorial innovations. How and with which actors does the local democracy contribute to the development of the territory? An analysis of the citizen participation is essential today. A historical interpretation is also necessary to understand the evolution of this social system. It is also important to identify the evolution of the conditions of the “good management”, in which the institutional offer of the participation has taken an essential place.
