Terrorisme, violences politiques et maintien de l’ordre

L’ultra gauche comme cible de la terreur instituée ?
Terrorism, Political Violence and Law Enforcement: The Ultra-gauche or Far Left as a Target of Instituted Terror?
Simon Le Roulley and Julien Long
p. 137-160


This paper focuses on the way in which exceptional measures have been used to repress social movements. Indeed, from November 2015 to November 2017, the terrorist threat looming over France allowed police departments to use anti-terrorist measures against social movement actors. Interviews with people under house arrest and those legally banned from demonstrations will serve to illustrate how anti-terrorism proceeds from a “terrorisation” of these populations. We propose to show the processes behind its emergence, its methodology and its effects on the concerned populations.
