Grande distribution alimentaire et recomposition des territoires. Etude de stratégies d'acteurs dans des zones rurales de Midi-Pyrénées

Abstract : During twenty years, the conquest of the rural areas by supermarkets and the reorganization of commercial appliances, parallel to the evolution of lifestyles and in particular the increase of mobility, have profoundly influenced territorial dynamics. The systems of stakeholders surrounding food distribution, including supermarkets, small businesses, producers, inhabitants-consumers and public authorities, are involved in a process of decomposition-reconstruction of rural areas. They contribute to the reorganization of space, driven for example by the concentration of commercial poles and the evolution of spatial practices of the inhabitants. They produce new links of scales, from the local level to the international level. They contribute to the reshaping of living spaces, for example in the relations between rural and urban areas. Finally, they participate in the reconstruction of the social and economic links that underpin territorial cohesion. The analysis of the systems of stakeholders surrounding food distribution is carried out in different rural areas of the Midi-Pyrénées region through a combination of several types of studies: regional monographs, spatial monographs of distributors, interviews of inhabitants, estimation of catchment areas of supermarkets, etc. This analysis of the systems of stakeholders serves the dual purpose of better understanding territorial dynamics and contributing to current debates on the relationship between mass distribution and regional planning.
