« Militants et populaires ! » Une organisation de jeunesse sarkozyste en campagne. : L'activation périodique d'une offre organisationnelle de militantisme et ses appropriations pratiques et symboliques

Abstract : « Militant, grassroots and popular ! » A Sarkozyist youth organization campaign slogan. The periodic activation of an activist campaign and its practical and symbolic appropriations With Nicolas Sarkozy leading the French conservative party (UMP) and the prospect of the presidential election coming up in 2007, the Jeunes populaires (JP) (i.e. « Grassroots/popular Youth », the UMP organization for members under 30) came center-stage in the party's « activist » show. Based on a questionnaire survey conducted at JP summer schools in September 2006 and on various fieldwork, this article concerns the activation of a short-term activist campaign by the UMP and JP and its effects on political involvement among these right-wing youths. After highlighting various practical and symbolic aspects of this « activist » identity, we examine patterns in the social division of labor inside this youth organization and in the selection of its leaders.
