How to cope with state intervention in municipal property? The creation of the Autonomous Port of Strasbourg in 1926 and its effects on the port administrations of Strasbourg and Kehl (1918 –1939)

Abstract : The paper presents the influence of the shift in national borders after the Great War and its consequences for the development of the port of Strasbourg's hinterland. It goes into detail as regards the role of the French State which was heavily involved in infrastructure investments during the period in question. The recently recovered port on the Rhine was in fact considered as a geostrategic tool for French international trade and the country's diplomatic presence in the Rhine region. In this context, how did the municipality and the local entrepreneurs react to this new position? In what way did the State's priorities change during the inter-war period?
