Le Centre-ville du Caire à l'épreuve des évolutions politiques et socio-économiques: - Paysages, fonctions, accessibilité et pratiques des habitants -

Abstract : The city of Cairo is directly managed by the State. Economic and urban policies initiated by successive political regimes, from the years 1952, have profoundly influenced the social structure of the city and the country as a whole. These policies were the driving force of social, residential and functional dynamics. Mobility of the affluent to the suburbs has created the phenomenon of polycentrism. Consequently, much of the luxury services have abandoned the downtown area to track their customers. Despite the deterioration of these services, the city centre has paradoxically retained its position as a focal point for power. The development of suburban shopping malls, as a prime example, has not resulted in the death of downtown Cairo, to which the latter has responded with its own procedures to enhance certain types of centrality. However, the loss of certain characteristics did weaken other types of centralities.
