L’abstention : déficit démocratique ou vitalité politique ?

Abstract : Abstention is on the rise in any type of election, in France as well as in numerous European countries. The expansion of this phenomenon leads to a redefinition of the modalities of political participation and of the attributes of modern citizenship. While systematic abstention seems relatively stable, there is a significant growth in a sporadic relationship with the ballot, and therefore with abstention itself. The alternative between voting and not voting has increasingly become the rule, and the latter is very often an instrument of political sanction.
