Résumé : This project was a joint effort of two university centres45 and deals with the different forms of participation or involvement in the implementation of sustainable development policies. "Participation" is an important part of policies like these. It is currently the subject of much analysis and can be expressed in many ways. In this regard, the project has attempted to: - clarify the concepts studied, referring to existing theories and practices and identifying trends - understand the conditions and forms of participation in sustainable development policies, in the case of the public authorities and in the case of the different categories of players involved. These two approaches are different and complementary. The IGEAT team of the Free University of Brussels (ULB) focuses on the institutional dimension (the more organised forms of participation) and on the role of organised social actors whereas the SEED team of the University Faculty of Luxembourg (FUL) is more concerned with the social dynamics and reorganisation resulting from this participation. Also, the first team turned its attention to socio-economic problems while the second team examined territorial dynamics.
