Le pouvoir des sans pouvoir : bilans et perspectives de recherche sur l'action non violente comme politique du conflit

Abstract : What about political science research on nonviolent action and civil resistance nowadays? The study of this phenomenon, initiated by the American Gene Sharp in 1970, then introduced in France by Jacques Sémelin in the nineties, is well behind compared to its practice and its historical impact. This article does not only aim to assess this field of research. It also intends to define the sociological concept of nonviolent action by restoring the many theoretical debates, as well as to identify the major issues raised by unarmed resistance against armed enemies, to propose a series of explanatory hypotheses, to develop a consistent methodology for case studies and to present the interest of such studies about nonviolent action, for political science as a whole.
