Des conseils citoyens inadaptés à la participation des jeunes ? Retour sur trois expérimentations dans des quartiers populaires de la périphérie lyonnaise

Abstract : This article analyses the creation of citizen councils under the perspective of youth participation in working class neighborhoods based on educational experiments that took place on three research fields in the urban areas of Lyon in France (Saint-Fons, Vaulx-en-Velin and Grigny). It questions the ability of this new participatory system to integrate young people who usually struggle to get involved in city stakes. Although conceived on different practical modalities, these three experiments bring out two major results. Firstly, the mobilization of the youth, although wanted, stays constrained by a set of common fragilities which occur in complicated socio-professional trajectories, a distant and distrustful relationship to local institutions and a deep feeling of illegitimacy concerning citizen participation. Secondly, the participatory norm related to the functioning of citizen councils has not adjusted well to the expectations of the public. It contributes, under these circumstances, to reproducing the mechanisms which usually turn away young people of working class neighborhoods from institutionalized participation.
