ABSTRACT
The liberalization of the cotton sector in Ivory Coast after fifteen years: spatial and organizational marks. The liberalization of the cotton sector in Ivory Coast is inspired by industrialized countries. Its approaches are supported by the Breton Woods institutions and the French Cooperation. The aim of this study is to review spatial and organizational reforms in the cotton basin of Ivory Coast. The results of this research revealed that liberalization is the cause of the restructuring of the cotton area. On the other hand, it has resulted an organizational dynamic based on the activity of the cotton companies and producers. In addition, the areas defined by the liberalization are not respected bycotton agencies. This non-compliance is manifested by the incursion of cotton companies in areas outside their initial block. In this logic of incursion, the producers of public society (CIDT) produce significantly more than those supervised by private cotton companies. This observation raises a debate regarding the continued liberalization of the cotton sector in Ivory Coast.
