This article presents, firstly, the implementation of an arena of dialogue - the Conference of the Hautes-Vosges - to resolve a conflict between tourism and environment centred on the Route des Crêtes in the National Regional Park of the Ballons des Vosges. The article aims, secondly, to analyse how the commissioning of a "sociological analysis" was transformed into this dialogue being accompanied by research in the form of participatory research. Finally, the article aims to understand the complex relations which may exist between participatory research and participation when the latter is led, at least initially, by a researcher. © 2015 Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.
