string role = Session["Role"].ToString();
            if (role == "Administrateur")
don't work

at row 2 (the actual line in your codes), can you put a break point and see what you get for variable "role" ?

"Administrateur " but when i see it in debug, there is a space between r and "
Maybe bug is here ?
I would first see where it is being initialized.  If you can't find the source, then try trimming it first:
string role = Session["Role"].ToString().Trim();

I have success to do it. In my Db, i have many roles and i have a role with name "Administrateur". But like i say, when i write manually the name of this role, i write with a space after r.
But i think use Trim() like you say, it is more safely.
