L'ONU comme territoire politique : Les enjeux scalaires d'un acteur global

Abstract : Studying the United Nations General Assembly geographically means taking seriously the scalar issues that arise within this space which is considered here, literally, as a political territory. If the rules of this institution are and remain international, we can therefore highlight the tensions associated with the transition to supranational logics regarding both the people involved and the subjects of resolution, it is possible to conduct multiscalar studies highlighting the evolution of the world system. Two examples of scalar conflicts are discussed here: those concerning the role of the European Union at the UN, and those on the geographical scale of resolutions related to human rights. Using tools of social network analysis, this article aims at studying the General Assembly of the UN as a spatial object.
