Alors que la mobilité s'est affirmée depuis quelques décennies comme une valeur centrale des sociétés urbaines, elle fait désormais l'objet d'une injonction qui se manifeste dans tous les domaines, qu'il s'agisse des déplacements quotidiens, de la mobilité professionnelle ou de la mobilité résidentielle. Cette dernière dimension de la mobilité est au cœur de cet ouvrage, dont l'ambition est d'analyser dans quelle mesure les mobilités résidentielles contribuent au creusement des inégalités sociales et territoriales et de discuter le rôle des politiques publiques dans les processus de mise en mobilité des habitants des territoires populaires. Dans un contexte de compétition entre les territoires, les mobilités résidentielles sont ainsi interrogées dans leur propension à renforcer les inégalités socio-spatiales, notamment entre les espaces qui sont en mesure de capter les populations les plus " désirables " et ceux qui au contraire ne parviennent qu'à accueillir les populations les plus " captives ". Les mobilités résidentielles sont également analysées en lien avec les trajectoires sociales, mettant en avant les déterminants sociaux des choix résidentiels. Enfin, les contributions réunies dans cet ouvrage discutent les orientations des politiques publiques incitant à la mobilité des classes populaires. À cet égard, les contributions révèlent l'importance de l'ancrage et les formes de résistance à la mobilité des habitants des territoires populaires. Dans ce cadre, les politiques de rénovation urbaine étudiées offrent des illustrations particulièrement intéressantes des tensions comme des impensés des politiques tournées vers la mobilité résidentielle

Le devenir des banlieues rouges by Marie-Hélène Bacqué( Book )

"Depuis le début du siècle, les communes ouvrières connaissent des évolutions sociologiques considérables. Constituées socialement et économiquement au XIXe siècle, dans un contexte d'industrialisation, elles sont frappées de plein fouet par les processus de restructuration qui remettent en cause leur base économique et bouleversent le groupe social sur lequel elles avaient construit leur identité . Elles ont développé des formes spécifiques d'enracinement territorial dont la banlieue rouge fournit l'exemple le plus typique
Ségrégation et justice spatiale : [atelier "Justice spatiale et ségrégation" du colloque international "Justice et injustices spatiales( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Alors que depuis quelques années, une réflexion s'est développée sur le concept de justice spatiale, cet ouvrage a pour ambition de contribuer au renouveau des analyses portant plus spécifiquement sur les liens entre ségrégation urbaine et justice, en favorisant les échanges scientifiques entre chercheurs issus d'horizons disciplinaires, géographiques et culturels variés. Il vise également à apporter des éléments nouveaux permettant d'éclairer les politiques urbaines qui, dans de nombreux pays, annoncent haut et fort vouloir remédier à la ségrégation parce qu'elle serait injuste par définition. Issus de l'atelier "Justice spatiale et ségrégation" du colloque international "Justice et injustices spatiales" qui s'est tenu à l'université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense en avril 2008, les textes rassemblés dans ce volume explorent ainsi plusieurs grandes questions toute division socio-spatiale de l'espace urbain en particulier est-elle injuste ? Quels sont les processus qui produisent de la ségrégation et en quoi sont-ils injustes ? Les situations de ségrégation produisent-elles des effets injustes (les effets de lieu par exemple) ? Symétriquement, l'objectif de la mixité socio-spatiale, souvent implicitement donné comme l'idéal de la ville juste, ne mérite-t-il pas d'être questionné ? Enfin, la prise en compte de la mobilité n'impose-t-elle pas de repenser les relations entre justice et ségrégation ?"

Transformations sociales en banlieue rouge : politiques locales, stratégies résidentielles et inscription territoriale des classes moyennes by Lina Raad( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The red suburbs are a belt of municipalities surrounding Paris that have been conquered by the Communist party from the 20's. For a long time, they have been characterized by social redistribution policies in favour of the working class, especially in the housing field. Since the 70's, the red suburbs have known intense economic and social transformation that destabilized the municipal communism. This thesis deals with the interactions between local housing policies in the red suburbs and residential strategies and territorial integration of middle classes, in a socio-spatial context where they are in minority. Since the 80's, social mix is a main objective of local housing policies in the red suburbs; those municipalities chose to diversify the housing stock, within die social housing stock, but also in developing private houses. The will to attract and stabilize middle classes contends with the necessity of offering dwellings to working classes and destitute populations. This thesis shows that communist municipalities still distinguish themselves by a strong regulation and by innovative practices in the housing policies field.The field survey with middle classes in two municipalities (Bagnolet, Saint-Denis) allows to moderate the role of economic constraints in their residential strategies : settling in the red suburbs give them opportunities to satisfy their aspirations about the dwelling but also about the residential neigbourhood Furthermore, some households show a preference for working class districts, and have a positive attitude towards social mix. In some cases this goes with personal commitment in direction of destitut populations. Some others are more reserved towards social mix, and use territorial conquest strategies, or choose to leave the red suburbs in direction of more wealthy districts. We analyze the functioning of local anchorage and of die attitude towards social mix of middle classes, in relation with their social and residential trajectories
Ségrégation et fragmentation dans les métropoles perspectives internationales by Marion Carrel( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les métropoles fascinent et inquiètent. D'un côté, elles apparaissent comme des sources inépuisables de créativité humaine, lieux de modernité et de tolérance. De l'autre, elles représentent la démesure, par leur expansion continue, et l'inégalité, par la ségrégation entre les populations qu'elles abritent. Pour analyser ces mondes urbains, les chercheurs doivent renouveler leurs approches. Plusieurs partis-pris marquent cet ouvrage, écrit par des auteurs de différentes disciplines, destiné à tous ceux qui voient dans la question urbaine davantage que le reflet des problèmes sociaux. D'abord, il s'agit de dépoussiérer les vieux concepts - ségrégation, ghetto - et d'interroger les nouveaux - fragmentation, ville dense. Ensuite, la perspective internationale adoptée rend justice à la particularité des contextes locaux : de Lima à Johannesburg en passant par Lille, les métropoles ne sont pas uniformes. Ce d'autant plus que les acteurs institutionnels, économiques ou politiques oscillent entre régulation publique et ouverture au marché, dans des rapports de force qui se reflètent sur l'occupation et l'appropriation des espaces. Enfin, on ne saurait oublier que les citoyens ordinaires et les groupes sociaux ne sont pas dociles. Ils font vivre la ville en contournant les frontières qui se dressent et en occupant des espaces où on ne les attend pas : jeunes de La Havane ou de Gennevilliers, femmes saoudiennes ou Roms à Saint-Denis, tous réclament leur droit à la ville
Géographie de la fragmentation urbaine et territoires scolaires à Marseille. by Gwenaëlle Audren( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation aims at describing the forms of urban fragmentation in Marseille as well as its socio-spatial consequences through the modalities of school supply at the middle-school level (collège) and the practices of choosing schools for 6th graders (élèves de sixième), at various levels, in 2006 and 2009. School mapping (carte scolaire) imposes to families a neighborhood middle school, but in the face of important socio-spatial reconfigurations affecting the entire city of Marseille, discrepancies between schools, parent's pedagogical expectations and local schooling conditions widen. The study focuses on the one hand on the quantification and localization of the phenomenon of school dodging (évitement scolaire) in Marseille, and on the other on the detailed analysis of territorial contexts, where several types of schooling strategies develop. Strong differentiations and quick urban socio-territorial recompositions in Marseille imply heterogeneous school practices illustrating the widening of socio-residential inequalities in the city and representing excellent markers to probe into increasing urban fragmentation. An analysis of the strategies of different institutional and individual actors allows one to grasp the mecanisms of production of a systemic, top-down school space. The territorial approach is largely valued here and the analysis of local contexts underlines the existence of multiple, differentiated school territories
Mais pourquoi arrivent-ils tous à la même heure ? : enquête sociologique auprès de cadres franciliens : le paradoxe de l'heure de pointe et des horaires de travail flexibles by Emmanuel Munch( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the core of city life, work hours set the rhythm of daily activities and movement. We are therefore investigating the possibility of staggering the start of the work day in order to reduce congestion at morning rush hour. Suggestions typically put forward are based on considerations of a tactical nature: it is companies? schedules which dictate that workers all commute at the same time. Thus, one proposed solution is to promote flexible work schedules. But our observations call this idea into question: in ?le-de-France, as far as public transportation is concerned, flexible work scheduling actually magnifies the number of commuters who arrive at work during rush hour. This paradoxical observation makes it necessary to change the way we usually think of the rush hour phenomenon. Before trying to solve peak congestions problems, we need to understand the underlying reasons on which an individual?s work schedule choices are based. Why does a worker with flexible work hours commute during rush hour? Our research adopts a comprehensive approach and focuses on daily scheduling demands. It relies on the results of a survey (3202 respondents) and interviews (29). Respondents and interviewees are executives from the Plaine Saint-Denis area. To describe temporal strategies that explain voluntary commuting during peak hours, we organize our hypotheses along three dimensions :(I) There remain coupling constraints (school hours, meeting hours) which force workers with flexible hours to go to work during peak hours. (II) Workers with flexible hours and fewer coupling constraints prefer (late afternoon leisure, activities with family and friends) to arrive before or during the rush hour. (III) There are social norms regarding work hours (ideal of the disciplined worker or the dedicated executive) that limit flexibility by frowning on those who arrive overly late at the office. Confirmation of these hypotheses opens the way to a renewed reading of the rush hour phenomenon in the age of flexibility: individualized (work) hours do not result in desynchronized (work) schedules. In conclusion, it is by revealing the organic intricacy of work synchronisation that our thesis generates operational recommendations for reducing congestion at peak hours
Economie politique de la densification des espaces à dominante pavillonnaire : l'avènement de stratégies post-suburbaines différenciées by Anastasia Touati( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze densification processes at work in low rise residential spaces of suburban and periurban areas that have rarely been studied in terms of their morphological changes. I adopt an urban political economy approach which is sensitive to the political, economic, social, regulatory and technical aspects of the materiality of the urban transformations observed.The thesis articulates two strands of existing work on territorial political economy and land use planning. The concept of post-suburbanisation, understood as a generalized process of intensive development affecting suburban areas in a differentiated manner and leading to a gradual autonomy of these suburbs in relation to the center of the agglomeration, is at the heart of the approach. As such, it raises the question of the densification of the sparse low rise areas inherited from the suburban era. But in this process, some municipalities are not looking to densify and deliberately obstruct densification, while others are, on the contrary, promoting it. This leads us to come up with our main hypothesis, namely that there is a link between the post-suburban strategy adopted and the privileged way to regulate densification. I study the densification processes in low rise areas in different contexts characterized by the existence of an explicit local policy of densification in two municipalities of the Toronto Region in Canada (Guelph and Markham) and in two municipalities of the Paris-City Region in France (Magny-les-Hameaux and Noisy-le-Grand). The analysis of the four case studies reveals two main types of densification processes: soft densification processes (Guelph and Magny-les-Hameaux) characterized by a densification that does not change the urban form, and hard densification processes (Markham and Noisy-le-Grand), which are characterized by a significant change in the urban form that can lead to the replacement of all or a part of the existing low rise areas by multistory buildings. The in-depth analysis of the densification processes and of the different measures that regulate them shows that, in the four municipalities, the densification policies are explicitly articulated with a search for a relative centrality in the urban region. The nature of the densification observed in the low rise areas appears both as a means and as an outcome of the degree of centrality aimed for by a given municipality within the post-suburban hierarchy. The cases illustrate that incentive-based policies of soft densification are implemented in municipalities that adopt a strategy aiming for local centrality, which leads to a moderate, mainly residential, growth policy. Hard densification policies (that can be incentive-based or interventionist) are the prerogative of municipalities adopting a strategy of sub-regional centrality, which is reflected in entrepreneurial policies aiming at attracting households and jobs to their territory. The research also shows that if the densification processes mainly result from market mechanisms that are expressed differently depending on the national urban and cultural contexts, the implemented public policies play an important role in the creation of these local land and property markets. Finally, we identified four types of local densification policies in the low rise areas. These different types of policies determine in a differentiated manner the nature (the urban forms produced) and the configuration (actors involved, actors affected, distribution of capital gains) of the densification processes
Nouveaux regards sur le périurbain( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La revue Géographie, économie, société accueille un numéro spécial consacré au périurbain, coordonné par deux jeunes chercheurs, Florent Le Néchet et Hélène Nessi. Les cinq articles et l'introduction qui constituent ce numéro défendent la thèse selon laquelle le périurbain aurait connu des transformations importantes nécessitant un changement de regard sur les espaces qui le composent, voire un effort de re-conceptualisation. Sans entrer dans le détail des articles, présentés dans l'introduction, on peut synthétiser les thèses défendues selon trois angles : le périurbain serait devenu mature, plus attachant et potentiellement plus durable
Les mécanismes d'une ségrégation universitaire francilienne : carte universitaire et sens du placement étudiant by Leïla Frouillou( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This doctoral research aims at explaining the differences of student populations between the universities of the Île-de-France region. Twelve of the sixteen universities were created after the events of May 1968, and four of them in 1991 (U2000 plan). Hence, the university landscape in the Parisian region is both complex and hierarchical. A bourdieusian perspective focused on the spatial dimension of social relations questions the factors of university segregation, defined by analogy with school segregation. Along with mental images, these factors can be analysed through material (transport systems) and institutional (allocation systems for students entering higher education) issues. Data describing the social characteristics of student populations are combined with interviews with academics and with nearly eighty students (half of them interviewed twice, or three times). Those students are registered in Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (in the quartier Latin) or in Paris 8 Vincennes - Saint-Denis, located in the northern underprivileged suburb of Paris, in Law, Geography or Administration faculties. In a segregated metropolis, allocation systems and universities strategies (specialization of curricula), along with location of faculties, create university segregation. For each student, higher education potentialities depend on his perception of institutional and material barriers. Inequalities of access to universities can be analysed through a sense of placement, resulting from the social trajectory and school capital of social agents. Indeed, students' mobilities between universities reveal adjustments, reproducing social difference of student populations between universities

Mobilité des pauvres et rapports au territoire by Sylvie Fol( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dans un contexte où la mobilité s'est non seulement développée au plan quantitatif mais aussi imposée comme une valeur montante des sociétés urbaines contemporaines, la faible mobilité des pauvres est souvent décrite comme un handicap. Cependant, l'observation des pratiques de ces ménages montre que leur faible mobilité résulte en partie de stratégies visant à maximiser leur accès à des ressources concentrées la plupart du temps dans des territoires restreints. Parmi ces ressources liées à la proximité, les réseaux sociaux tiennent une place essentielle, du point de vue de l'accès à l'emploi mais aussi, plus généralement, dans les processus d'insertion sociale des ménages pauvres. Dès lors, dans le champ des politiques publiques, la priorité donnée à la " mise en mouvement" des pauvres mérite d'être questionnée et une réflexion sur les possibilités de renforcer les ressources locales dans leur capacité d'intégration des ménages pauvres paraît indispensable
Coping with the costs of car dependency: A system of expedients used by low-income households on the outskirts of Dijon and Paris( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Living on low incomes and in a car-dependent area is often interpreted as a double burden for households, even if the two characteristics are often interdependent. While their capacity for mobility is lower, low-income households in outer suburban areas are nonetheless mobile. Their capacities in this domain should not be underestimated or overlooked. They can command a set of alternative practices or expedients to deal with car-related economic stress by a set of resources derived essentially from spatial proximity. This article aims to present and analyse the diversity of these expedients for the case of outer suburban areas around Paris and Dijon. The analysis of mobility adjustments by low-income households is based on interviews of 45 households in 2011. Our results show that mobility expedients make it possible for low-income households to continue to reside in car-dependent areas by reducing their trips and by using local resources and networks to lower the costs of their car dependency. The contribution of our work is to show the intensity of these practices, which create a structured and collectively or socially built alternative system to solo car use. Highlights: Low-income households in urban outskirts use expedients to cope with car dependency. Social networks, local resources, and reduced travel are the main expedients. Moving to less car-dependent locations is the expedient of last resort. Expedients are implemented by individuals but are collectively constructed

La financiarisation du capitalisme urbain : Marchés immobiliers tertiaires et politiques de développement urbain dans le Grand Paris et le Grand Lyon, les projets des Docks de Saint-Ouen et du Carré de Soie by Antoine Guironnet( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Myriads of urban objects and spaces located in city-regions have turned into financial assets. Office buildings, shopping malls, student dwellings, and large utilities are purchased by investment funds and listed property companies, which seek to capitalise on the future income streams based on their use by firms and people. Urban redevelopment and financial markets are thus intertwined through the financing circuits of property markets. By analysing the interactions between the financial strategies of real estate asset managers and the urban development policies of city governments, the thesis sets out to analyse this financialisation of urban capitalism. In order to question their power relationships and their socio-spatial and material outcomes, it develops a comparison between two large-scale, mixed-use urban redevelopment projects located in the Greater Paris and Greater Lyon areas. The comparison is based on the investigation of the projects, commercial real estate fairs where they are showcased to investors, and metropolitan strategies.Despite different local agendas, both projects leads to the production of standardised and spatially clustered commercial real estate buildings whose access is limited to a restricted set of tenants, thus strongly constraining urban redevelopment policies. Such characteristics correspond to the selective expectations of asset managers, whose investment standards are circulated by real estate brokers and developers to city governments. They result from different processes, which involve more or less conflicts according to local agendas. Faced with intense opposition from developers, the city of Saint-Ouen had to back on several key goals of the project, whereas the redevelopment of the Carre de Soie was undertaken on the basis of a strong consensus between local developers and the Greater Lyon metropolitan authority. In order to account for these differences, the thesis identifies two local configurations conducive of financialisation. In Saint-Ouen's Docklands case, weak regulation at the city-region scale between cities competing to attract businesses contributes to localised power relationships; their results depend in turn from the combination between priority-setting, redevelopment financing and land materiality. In the Carre de Soie case, the institutionalisation of a property-led policy carried out by the metropolitan executive and its economic development staff has organised the circulation of investment standards at the city-region scale, thereby enhancing their impact on urban redevelopment.Based on these results, the thesis offers an urban political economy of the financialisation of urban production which, compared to Marxian theory, highlights the role of real estate asset managers and pays attention to the mediations of such a process. It also contributes to theories of urban power by emphasising the limited explanatory power of local agendas on the selective effects of financialisation. Eventually, it discusses how, under specific circumstances, an urban financialised coalition emerges
