Gouvernance verticale et corruption en Inde urbaine : la segmentation spatiale de l'aide alimentaire publique

Abstract : Analysing the interrelationships between the notions of urban splintering and governance is the goal of this paper through a case study in urban India. Firstly we describe the obstacle race that each poor inhabitant in Mumbai and Hyderabad has to participate to, in order to get subsidized food rations. The next section explains this situation by the “ corruption chain” from the shop keepers to the civil servants and the hidden brokers. All this works under a politically-based patronage that we call “vertical governance.” As a corollary, an important spatial segmentation occurs at every scale, from the nation to the neighbourhood and the household, with evident consequences on people’s mobilisation.
