Article
This paper aims to present the system put in place nationally to process migrants and its role in the revitalisation of rural spaces, taking the rural Ariège department as a case study. The system is based on a number of institutional and non-institutional stakeholders and, in the case under study, a reception centre for asylum seekers. Social work...
Article
Less studied and documented than in the cities, the presence of foreigners in the French countryside remains more discreet and often unknown today. However, new international migrations are crossing rural areas, thus adding to previous movements. In rural southwestern France, our statistical analysis, based on census data obtained from INSEE and av...

Alexander von Humboldt wrote that ‘the arrangement of mountains… divide the surface of the earth into basins or vast cirques…and influence the range of cultures, habits, institutional forms and national hates’ (Debarbieux, 2012, p.13). While this formulation may seem outdated, von Humboldt’s reflection remarkably still resonates more than a century...

La région Île-de-France a connu de profondes transformations au cours de la seconde moitié du xxe siècle : dépeuplement de Paris et réhabilitation de certains quartiers, densification des banlieues et périurbanisation. Ces changements sont à l’origine de redistributions importantes des populations au sein de l’agglomération parisienne, avec le dépa...
Article
In this article, we test the hypothesis of the coexistence of several autochthonous regimes within the same territory – specifically that of Ariège Department in southwest France – based on an analysis of the link between “anchoring” and “engagement.” We focus in particular on a specific form of engagement: the mobilization of aid for refugees. How...

Este capítulo tiene como objetivo dar cuenta de los principales avances metodológicos en el enfoque biográfico de la movilidad residencial. Examinaremos cómo los métodos de recolección y análisis han evolucionado en diálogo con los cambios teóricos y problemáticas que han marcado el campo de estudio de la movilidad residencial, y gracias a la acumu...
Article
La notion d'habitat informel, venue des études urbaines, s'applique bien aux formes diverses d'habitat non conventionnel qui sont répandues dans le département de l'Ariège. Leur importance visible sur le terrain est masquée par le vide statistique dans lequel elles sont placées par la méthode de dénombrement de la population de l'Insee, héritée du...
Article
Using data from the Biographies et Entourage ‘Event histories and contact circle’ survey, conducted by INED in 2001, we will examine urban transformations via the mobility behaviour of 2830 residents in the Paris region. The analysis of residential trajectories has been a major focus of research in recent years but the influence of the social envir...

Chapter
The focus of this chapter is the concept of life space, which uses a global and linked approach to mobilities to capture hybrid practices between residential and daily mobility (such as multi-residence and long-distance commuting). In more substantial terms, such a global and linked approach to mobilities makes it possible to focus on the multi-loc...
Chapter
i>Researching the Lifecourse features methods linking time, space and mobilities, and provides practitioners with practical detail in each chapter. It covers the full lifecourse and includes innovative methods and case study examples from different European and North American contexts.

La mobilité spatiale est au cœur des défis qu'engendrent le développement durable et plus généralement, l'aménagement et l'urbanisme. Pour autant, cette question reste méconnue et brouillée par de nombreuses idées reçues. À partir d'une grande enquête sur les circulations européennes au départ de Lisbonne, cet ouvrage propose une réflexion globale...

Eleven per cent of adults living in France in 2011 live in two or more residences. The phenomenon is particularly widespread among young adults - 26% of 18-19 year olds are concerned - who live in two residences for family and educational reasons. The second home is most frequently used on weekends and holidays. Only 9% to 10% of working adults liv...

Ce projet avait pour objectif de saisir la maniere dont les populations qui realisent des deplacements reguliers et/ou frequents a partir d’un lieu de residence principale (Berlin, Bruxelles, Lisbonne, Londres et Paris) reconfigurent leurs espaces de vie tant du point de vue des pratiques que de leurs representations. Ces espaces sont explicitement...

The lack of data and the persistent segmentation of spatial mobility approach handicap the understanding of the logics of urban settlement in Senegal. Focusing on the various forms of spatial mobility (international migrations, internal migrations, intra-urban mobilities) in the approach of urban change, we propose a new reading of the recent settl...

Built from the beginning of the 70’s, the new towns of the Île-de-France region illustrate well the aging of formerly urbanised outskirts. This aging, linked to the demographic changes (natural dynamics are taking over migratory flows), is going with a local stabilisation of the populations. Thus, this article describes this anchoring process which...

This article examines the circulation of people between Lisbon and four other European cities (Berlin, Brussels, London, Paris) in terms of the difficulties that it can cause. The proposed approach articulates three dimensions, namely the construction of practices of circulation between cities at a biographical scale, the way families deal with the...

Les villes nouvelles franciliennes sont le fruit d’une rencontre entre d’une part un imaginaire bâtisseur voulant restaurer la liberté de choix de banlieusards qui jusqu’alors vivaient dans des « cités dortoirs » dépourvues d’équipements et, d’autre part, un imaginaire habitant s’inscrivant dans l’expérience pionnière la plupart du temps de jeunes...

"Anchorages" in the Parisian new towns : building "living bowls"
Article
Full-text available
In western Europe, land reclamation for agricultural purposes ended a decade or two ago. Moreover, some polders have recently been given up to the sea for environmental reasons. But there is a lack of recent knowledge of the techniques and issues relating to "depolderisation", particularly public perceptions and opposition to it. This paper reviews...

New towns were intended for generating full living spaces within Paris large metropolitan area. Thirty five years later, the former settlers seem to be deep-rooted in their new town. It can be explained by both the creation of centrality in these new urban areas and the large scale of this settlement. If the settlement in a new town meant first aff...

For several years, kinship relations have been subjected to researches which tend to point out the importance of physical proximities. These proximities may be read as a sign of the social networks density woven in the neighbourhood, eventually as people's anchoring. This work rests on the hypothesis of a link between urban context of the residence...

Project
Le projet Paris mégarégion, animé par l’UMR CNRS 6266 IDEES, a pour but de constituer un réseau de spécialistes de la mégarégion parisienne et des enjeux qui la concernent (économie, politique, gouvernance, risques, environnement, démographie...). Ce projet donnera lieu à la publication d’un Atlas collaboratif en ligne en juin 2021, dont la ligne éditoriale sera ouverte aussi bien du point de vue des thématiques que des profils des contributeurs.
