Les temps changent, renouvellement générationnel et évolutions politiques en France

Abstract : The impact of generational renewal on political and civic life is often neglected in public and scientific debates. The reasons for this disinterest concern the pervasiveness and contributions of research on primary socialization and life-cycle effects as well as a tendency of research to adopt a Mannheimian perspective on political generations. In fact, cohort analysis of the left or right positioning of French people on the political spectrum since the 1970s brings to light major changes. Generational renewal is not politically neutral : it handicaps the right while bringing about an increase in the proportion of « non-aligned ». What may be seen through generational renewal is the deep transformation of the notions of left and right in France, due to the emergence of cultural issues but also a redefinition of attitudes toward politics generally and voting in particular.
