Public/privé : la culture sociopolitique des salariés en Europe

English title: Public Sector/Private Sector : The Sociopolitical World of European Workers

This research focuses on two main political questions : as the State reform is a major challenge for European countries, what can be said about the political and social differences between private sector and public sector workers? What are the links between work conditions on the one hand and political choices on the other? The research shows that the sociopolitical values and behaviour of civil servants are still specific even in countries where new public management reforms have been implemented. Another conclusion is that there is no European convergence and that market values are only shared by elites but relatively rare within the ranks of wage-earners even in the private sector. National sociopolitical models explain strong variations in the level of job satisfaction as well as in the level of sociopolitical involvement. Finally, the demand for more European involvement in major public policies is relatively weak as compared to nationalistic preferences.
