Expertise anthropologique et politiques foncières au Sud

Abstract : Anthropologists involved in land policies in the South confront themselves to concepts once been central to their discipline but obsolete nowadays, and to debatable policy narratives. Given the current epistemological and political uncertainty characterizing land policies and the plurality of knowledge production sites on land issues, expertise in this field can best seen as feeding policy networks and promoting debate on land knowledge than as responding to fixed terms of references. Drawing on our experience as anthropologists involved in research and expertise, we show to what extent anthropological expertise contributes to unveil assumptions underlying land policy debates while accompanying these policies and assuming the structural incompleteness of public action.
