This paper deals with a generalization of the classical Choquet theorem. We consider metric spaces which are endowed with an abstract notion of convexity. Convex combinations are obtained by the solutions of variational inequalities. A generalized Krein-Milman theorem is derived from our Choquet theorem. We end with an example based on hyperbolic geometry.
