Questions vives pour la géographie de l'intercommunalité

Abstract : This paper addresses the geographical stakes which animate cooperation between municipalities. This contribution updates work of Guy Baudelle (1996) and Philippe Menerault (1994) by establishing a new panorama of the intercommunality question through the contribution of geographers. The examination of articles being interested in the intercommunality, published in many reviews of geography, enabled us to draw up a synthesis of the concerns of the discipline on historical, identity, organisational and space dimensions of the cooperation between municipalities. In addition to the geographical interest of this approach, the analysis raises a paradox between spatial cutting and the space practices, increasingly complex and difficult to apprehend inside tight administrative limits.
