Entre territoires et réseaux : la requalification des espaces locaux en France et en Allemagne. Jeux d'acteurs, d'échelles et de projets

Abstract : Since the mid 1990's, European states have been exploring new spatial-planning and development policies. Emphasis is laid on mobilizing local actors to carry out projects. In France and Germany, which proves at odds with traditional planning schemes conceived exogenously (DATAR, Raumplanung/Territorialplanung).
Reshaping local spaces is understood as a new shape of local scales through projects but also as a revalorization of local scales through the increasing involvement of local actors. Its hinges upon two differentiated models for reshaping: the French territorialized model, with its politics of Pays, and a way more reticular model in Germany, with regional development schemes (Regionalentwicklungskonzepte).
By confronting local experiences of such projects (Libournais and Périgord Noir in France, South-West Thuringia in Germany) with new law expectations, this work uses the notion of interplay as a framework for the dynamics at work. It lays stress on the true multiplicity and complexity of both the space and the goals of this interplay (interplay of projects), of actors' roles and strategies (interplay of actors) and of relations between territorial scales (interplay of scales) which are all part of the reshaping dynamics. The whole process contributes to somehow hybridizing emerging local spaces thus located within an “in-between” space, halfway between territories and networks - the epistemological and methodological issues of which imply both geography as a discipline and the practice of spatial-planning, whether in France, in Germany or in the European field.
