Re-examination of the concept of «informality» is currently receiving renewed attention and interest in the social sciences, particularly in Anglo-Saxon literature, be it economic, political, urban, cultural or symbolic studies. This re-examination is equally relevant to societies of the South and of the North, and possibly even nullifies this North-South dichotomy entirely, as the latter largely stems from the eurocentrism of the social sciences. Key to this re-examination is the fact that it is the States themselves that today produce and instrumentalize informal practices. A corollary to this is the realization that the notion of «informal» is deeply embedded within, and is at the heart of the State and not outside the State as has heretofore been represented. The notion of «informal» carries an epistemological critique of the very foundations of the social sciences of the 20th century, developed in the wake of the rise of the welfare states and the very notion of «modernity», articulated around concepts of equity, redistribution, security, justice, social mobility, and progress among others. Re-examining the «informal» lays bare the fractures in the foundations of the welfare state. It makes it possible to better understand how this political edifice of modernity has been constructed and why, today, it is shaken to its foundations.
