Dubaï, utile ou futile ? : Portrait d'une ville rêvée à l'heure de la crise

Abstract : Dubai, which set itself as a symbol of the triumphant globalization, is today facing the worst crisis of its short history. The collapse of financial markets and of the crude's prices since the autumn of 2008 is a crucial test for its development's model, based on services geared toward a worldwide range of customers, in search of rapid profits and of leisure.
This article examines the recipes of the model and its ability to overcome present difficulties, as well as to change so as to grant Dubai the human and social stability which it is still lacking.
