Recognition. A lever for social and territorial cohesion?


Workshops were held in several French cities: Trappes, Clichy-sous-Bois, Marseille, Maubeuge, Roubaix, Stains.
This local investigation contributes to a primary cartography of the lack of recognition felt by the citizens, as well as the dysfunctions of the institutions that the local actors report.
On this basis, public agents, citizens and associations met several times to prototype solutions.
These solutions can either become national measures or can be implemented locally through public-private-civil partnerships.

The workshop's topics were about the improvement of police-population relations, the recognition of students and teachers, the mechanics of transmission, history and cultural identity, the mechanisms of listening and dialogue between institutions and citizens, etc. The recognition dynamics are likely to reconstruct the citizen's confidence in the public authorities.
