La place des jeunes dans les conseils municipaux en milieu rural, de la sollicitation à l’intégration. Étude appliquée à la communauté d’agglomération de Flers Agglo dans l’Orne

Abstract : Currently, there are observations about the youth in electoral life and an aging population especially in rural areas. As a reaction, this research deals with the place of the young under 30 in municipal councils in a rural environment. As a minority but also as potential stakeholders of the countryside’s development, the young appear as a social poorly coordinated category. Municipal councils should be a representative space of the local population. However, we find only 4% of 18-30 elected in France in 2020, and a majority of mayors are some retired men, mainly ex-farmers. This work raises representativeness and democratic issues. What are the mechanisms of the young commitment and what are the explanations of their absence? To fuel this work, many young peoples and also mayors elected in towns and villages of different sizes in western Orne have been surveyed. The objective is to describe the social-economic profile of the young elected, to understand their motivations and the levers facilitating their commitments. Moreover, this work questions the specificity of rural areas. Are these territories having a particular link with the young on the public stage?
