Abstract: In the early 2000s, Quebec regions had a surge in uranium exploration after the substantial increase of the uranium prices in the markets. These uranium exploration projects were confronted with growing citizens and politics mobilizations who questioned the industry expertise and the government capacity to protect the public interests and the environment. Based on the advocacy coalition framework, this thesis seeks to explain the Quebec government’s decision to suspend the certificates of authorization (in other words, to impose an administrative moratorium) in the uranium industry even though the most advanced project, the Matoush Project, received all the administrative authorization. By studying and comparing the mobilized coalitions on this issue and their influence on the successive governments, this research should bring a new light on neglected elements of analysis from the advocacy coalition framework.
