Abstract (La gouvernance des politiques publiques de protection sociale des enfants au Sénégal)

In Senegal, the governance and production of public action in
child social protection policies are carried out by several actors. This article
analyzes the dynamics that exist in this polyarchic governance over these
policies. This polyarchic co-production and governance is an arena where
confrontations, interactions, struggles, conflicts, competitions among
actors contribute to the progression of the child’s vulnerability. The results
obtained show that the multiple interactions between the actors weaken
the interventions. Practices and attitudes in the care of the child are part
of different logics. Polyarchic governance constitutes a brake to the
achievement of such policies.
Keywords: Polyarchic governance, public action, social protection,
vulnerability, interaction.
