Associations et collectivités territoriales au cœur de la démocratie locale. Le cas de l'Indre.

Abstract : The existence of non-profit organisations is characteristic of modern democracies. The link between them and democracy nonetheless seems to become gradually weaker as public debate focuses more and more on their social and economic performances. Local authorities in particular, which provide the non-profit sector with funds and missions, tend to use them as implementation tools for their own needs and thus to reduce their potential as representatives and spokespeople of civil society. The first part of this article will thus investigate the theoretical aspect of the links between these organisations and democracy. The second part studies the concrete aspects of this interaction in a rural department of Central France. Looking beyond this tendency on the part of local authorities to avail themselves of the services of local associations, we find that a balanced dialogue is possible between them in the context of the progressive implementation of a form of participatory democracy.
