L'inspection du travail agricole : vie et mort d'une institution d'exception

Abstract : The French Labor Inspectorate has been studied extensively by the social sciences. The history of this administration has been documented, showing that it illustrates the ambiguities of the public policies that have framed industrial development for more than a century. For the most part, scholars have focused on the authorities directly dependent on the Ministry of Labour, which are responsible for inspecting the industry and service sector. However, Inspection services have historically been responsible for the enforcement of labour law in other sectors. In this article, we focus on the case of the French Agricultural Labour Inspectorate. Based on the exploration of archives and interviews, we review the creation and evolution of this administration from the 1930s until its disappearance in 2009. We show its organization and activities were influenced by the dynamics of state managerialization, but also by conflicts between professional groups and services within the French administration.
