Action publique et fabrique du consensus : La « lutte contre le gaspillage alimentaire » en France et aux États-Unis

Abstract : Public policy and consensus-making“Fighting food waste” in France and the United StatesThe recent but intense promotion of “food waste” as a public problem in France and the United States has created an apparent consensus between private and public actors with competing interests in the production, distribution and consumption of food. Through multi-stakeholder participation in public action, a consensual framing – which nonetheless excludes dissident views – has emerged. As a result, the “fight against food waste” appears to be a model of a sector-segmented and expert driven policy based on managerial and logistical innovations, as opposed to a politicized issue addressed with prescriptive measures. It thus brings about incremental adaptations within food systems – such as creating markets for unconsumed food commodities – rather than structural changes. The two national approaches to addressing the public problem offer a perspective on the joint regulation of production systems by public and private actors and more generally on contemporary evolutions of public policy.
