La mise en scène de la lutte contre l'insécurité alimentaire au Mali : discours, postures et jeux d'acteurs

Abstract : How is it possible to supply and nourrish with basic foods the growing majority of poor and vulnerable urban citizens? This is the cruel dilemma the Malian and the Senegalese governments have to cope with since the beginning of the year. In fact, as global and local cereals market prices are rapidly increasing, it is more and more difficult to maintain social cohesion and food fatalism in these countries. And global food security trends are rather disquieting because little could be done immediately to increase local food productions, to export them and to reduce food aid and import needs. This accessibility food crisis is quite different from the another (1973, 1984, 2005) which was more rural and visible. Meanwhile, political and religious discourses are gaining in importance to explain, reveal or justify it. However, these are to be considered as rhetorical and tactical staging in order to vanish any political or economical responsability and to may find some exemplary and useful as called “bouc émissaire”.
