La question méridionale égyptienne : gérer ou réduire les disparités sociospatiales

Abstract : In a global context of achieved demographic transition and sustained economic growth, Egyptian geography is still determined by the encystment of spatial disparities on the intra-urban as well as regional scale. The dichotomy between the Nile valley and the Delta, pivoting on either side of Cairo, is structural. The options in favor of the structural adjustment of public spending and a focus on metropolitan infrastructures, for example the liberalization of economic investment (the effect of which is more polarization) are not capable of reducing regional disparities. In part, this regionalization of inequalities serves the purpose of monitoring the Egyptian nation.
