Résumé

The institutionalisation of collective action has become a central issue in understanding the fate of social movements. Very recently, however, there has been a tendency to incorporate ethnic associations within the local level community network. This movement certainly had the effect of “desenclaving” the associative networks and ethnic groups, but it has also challenged their actual basis of identity, so important in community action. Ethnocultural minority groups have found themselves confronted with a double process of institutionalisation that has correspondingly robbed them of their autonomy and which is perceived by some of them as a threat on their community dynamic. To explore this process, I examine collective action at the neighbourhood level, using a perspective that might seem very far removed from the problematic of social movements. I begin by very briefly outlining the work that has been undertaken over the last few years on urban social movements in Montreal 1 to demonstrate the importance of their institutionalisation. Next, I should introduce some contextual elements that can shed light on the challenges created by interethnic cohabitation for Montreal society, especially over the past fifteen years. Finally, I return to a study conducted in 1992- 1993 on multiethnic neighbourhoods in the metropolitan region to illustrate the localTo explore this process, I examine collective action at the neighbourhood level, using a perspective that might seem very far removed from the problematic of social movements.
