The Concept of Province-Building: A Critique [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
In the discourse of Canadian political science, the term "province-building" has gained wide currency. Although not often defined explicitly, it denotes the recent evolution of more powerful and competent provincial administrations which aim to manage socioeconomic change in their territories and which are in essential conflict with the central government. In this analysis, the generalizations which constitute province-building are examined and most are found not to be adequately supported by the evidence now available. Some lines of research are indicated and it is suggested that this emotive and misleading concept be abandoned. /// Dans la science politique au Canada, le concept de \textless\textless province-building \textgreater\textgreater est maintenant courant. Le concept est rarement défini clairement mais il renvoie essentiellement à la constitution de gouvernements provinciaux compétents et puissants, qui cherchent à gérer le développement économique à l'intérieur de leurs frontières et qui entrent en conflit avec le gouvernement fédéral. Le texte réexamine les propositions qui constituent la thèse du \textless\textless province-building \textgreater\textgreater. La plupart de ces propositions ne sont pas confirmées par les faits et données disponibles. On conclut que le concept devrait être tout simplement abandonné. Quelques pistes de recherche sont finalement suggérées.
