Mutations de cultures du risque traditionnelles au contact d'un modèle occidental sur un territoire insulaire particulièrement exposé aux catastrophes naturelles : le Vanuatu

Abstract : Traditional societies of Vanuatu are undergoing major cultural changes, brought by the growing relations with Western society. The risk culture is one of the principal foundations of these Melanesian societies, developed in an insular setting strongly exposed to natural hazards. Based on key sectors undergoing different degrees of westernization on the islands of Tanna and Efate, between the capital city Port Vila and the isolated community of Imafen representing the two extremes, the research aims by a cross of different methods to understand how tradtional risk culture is impacted by modernity. It also focuses on the difficulties faced by sovereign society in the strengthening of the community risk management system. A paricipatory survey method and a field method were experienced in this Master thesis.
