Summary

Organisé par l'UMR CNRS LAVUE (Laboratoire Architecture Ville Urbanisme Environnement) et Centre SUD (Situations Urbaines de Développement), avec le concours du BRAURP (Ministère de la Culture et communication), de la Mairie de Paris et de la Région Ile de France, le colloque international « Engagements et tensions autour de la rénovation urbaine. Expériences locales et comparaisons internationales » qui se tiendra à Paris les 25 et 26 janvier 2013 a pour objectif d’appréhender la rénovation urbaine selon quatre principaux questionnements : quelles sont les convergences entre les formes historiques de la rénovation et ses modalités actuelles, dans des contextes sociétaux et urbains pourtant très contrastés ? Les développements récents des métropoles mondiales dans les pays en développement amènent-ils à reconsidérer les formes d’action et de justification des acteurs engagés pour ou contre la rénovation urbaine ? Comment appréhender les tensions que la rénovation urbaine peut générer, sachant que la multiplication des projets s’inscrit dans un double processus de métropolisation et de privatisation de l’espace urbain ? Enfin, quelles sont les réponses publiques et civiques (formes d’engagement, de mobilisations sociales ou de médiation) apportées à ces situations de fortes tensions urbaines et sociales ?
