Du principe de prévention aux cultures locales du risque inondation

Abstract : This paper questions the possible forms of public policies for risk management relocation (Giddens, 1994) by putting in perspective case studies on the risk of flooding in the South East of France. The analysis focuses on the reception of a directive in two neighborhoods close geographically and subject to the same legal framework and to the same climatic conditions but where « risk culture » is different. It reveals that the generic management principles can give places to mechanisms totally opposed within the relocation process that can not be explained by the only cultural difference. The local situations - which give to seeing nuances in a common cultural framework, fruit of distinct socio-historical trajectories - can lead to very different dynamics with regard to the risks.
