Choisir les locataires du parc social ? Une approche ethnographique de la gestion des HLM

Abstract : This article examines the methods used by low-rent housing agents when sorting out applications. Despite the impressive battery of legal rules and regulations governing their activity, HLM officials can exercise significant discretionary powers when deciding who qualifies as future tenant. In particular, we study the procedures of qualification and categorization according to which they make their choice, which, if it becomes a general practice, can result in the exclusion of certain groups from the social housing sector. The study shows how processes of systematic discrimination are built up both within the agencies and in the relations they establish with their surroundings.
