Abstract : The mains results of this work are threefold. First, theoretical issues are revisited in the light of the information from fieldwork: gender appears as a pervasive institution in markets, which results in the economic subordination of women. However, not all women are more deprived than all men: gender determination is itself embedded in other social institutions such as class, urbanism or ethnicity. An institutional representation of markets also seems justified: the market investigated is actually socially embedded, not enly in gender, but also in a wide range of other social institutions. The embeddeness results from the partial determinationn of economic behaviour by social ideologies, and from the regulation and perpetuation of forms of exchange by social norms. Second the methodology designed for the thesis is discussed: it appears as practically applicable, but the analytical separation of gender from the other social institutions produces a restricted view of the embeddedness of the market. Finally, the descriptive information obtained on the rice market of eastern Guinea is used for policy recommendations: the embeddedness of the market in gender results in an imperfectly competitive market structure and a less than optimal market performance, hence a questionning of the current liberalization implemented in the state
