    Tourism in Indonesia and Southern Countries

    A vector of sustainable development?

    The objective of the conference is to analyze the effect of tourism, questioning more specifically in this second edition its potential for becoming a vector of sustainable development, understood in its more general sense. Within this framework, we will question its economic impact, as well as its social effects, on Indonesia and Southern countries. We are interested in knowing how extra income is redistributed to the local population and whether it affects, or on the contrary, strengthens the traditional organizations of the communities, bringing new actors, investors, decision-makers in the traditional social organization.

Comparisons and attempts at modelling will be welcome. The papers may be proposed by researchers, practitioners or associations and may be jointly authored. They must deal with one of the three topics described below, which are to be the subject of three successive seminars.

    Global diplomacy and natural resources

    Stakes, practices and influences of non-state actors (18th-21st centuries)

    Since the end of the Cold war, the activity of non-State actors has attracted considerable attention as part of an increasingly globalised governance and diplomacy. As Richard Langhorne has remarked, the 1961 Congress of Vienna ‘marked both the culmination and the beginning of the end of classical diplomacy’, in which ‘the State ha[d] been, since the seventeenth century, the principal and sometimes the only, effective actor’. As Langhorne and Hamilton have convincingly argued in The Practice of Diplomacy, today’s diplomacy is characterised by a ‘blurring [of] the distinctions between what is diplomatic activity and what is not, and who, therefore are diplomats and who are not’.Quite revealing of this change on the international diplomatic stage is the proliferation and the increased importance of multifarious non-State actors (NSA). The waning of classical State diplomacy has thus been paralleled by the advent of transnational organisations, which, whether public or private, now play a key role in the conduct of diplomacy.

    Tourism in Indonesia

    The beginning of the XXI century is characterized by the development of international tourism practices. This activity, that has deeply changed the relation to time and space in the western world since the XVIII century, is now conquering the expanding countries of Asia. This specific moment of adoption of an activity and its practices, give the opportunity to analyze the various aspects of its growth. Are we observing a phenomenon of transfers, mutations or creations? If the development of tourism inChina and India has been studied for several years, its development in Indonesia still requires an in-depth analysis. How is this new activity appropriated in the fourth most populous country in the world? What are the effects on the Indonesian society, whose distinctiveness comes from the diversity of its people, cultures, and religions, throughout its 17,000 islands, from Sumatra to Papua?

    The Health and Wealth of US Capitalism: A Critical Condition?

    Les bouleversements consécutifs à la Grande Récession ont renouvelé les termes du débat sur la santé du modèle américain de capitalisme, paradigme économico-politique qui, à la fin du XXe siècle, était encore considéré comme un parangon d'efficience économique dans la majeure partie du monde. Plus de quatre ans après le déclenchement de la crise des subprime, l'économie américaine demeure dans un état critique, et le « modèle » américain, qui a porté atteinte à la santé économique des Américains, réduit la richesse de la nation et plongé l'économie mondiale dans une crise de vaste ampleur, s'en trouve fortement discrédité. Ce colloque se propose d'apporter un nouvel éclairage sur la nature, la vigueur et la viabilité de l'économie des États-Unis et sur le paradigme économico-politique qui lui est associé.

    The heritage value of biodiversity and the governance of natural resources in light of environmental stress

    Seminar on natural resources managment in configurations of environmental risk

    Le séminaire « Patrimonialisation de la biodiversité et gouvernance des ressources naturelles à la lumière du stress environnemental et sociétal est organisé à l'IFRA de Nairobi en relation avec un ensemble de recherches croisant les thèmes du patrimoine de la biodiversité, la création des aires protégées et les questions de gouvernances des ressources naturelles.Organisé autour de « cas d’école », ce séminaire pose la question de la gouvernance des ressources naturelles dans des configurations qui témoignent d’une interdépendance croissante entre les changements climatiques, l’accessibilité aux ressources naturelles et l'évolution des normes internationales en matière de protection de la nature. Il porte plus spécifiquement sur la capacité de sociétés vulnérables à intervenir, voir à gérer des situations de stress qu’elles soient environnementales et/ou sociétales.

    Agricultures, durabilité et territoires

    Appel à contributions pour Géocarrefour - Call for Papers for Geocarrefour

    Nous souhaitons poser dans ce numéro la question de la durabilité de l’agriculture en lien avec celle des territoires ruraux. Les contributions sont attendues autour de trois axes principaux : 1) Comment se crée le consensus autour d’une agriculture durable ? 2) La remise en cause des types et des systèmes de production ; 3) La "vivabilité" de l'activité agricole.Envisager la question de la durabilité de l’agriculture en lien avec les territoires renouvelle la capacité de la géographie rurale à articuler espace, activité et dimension temporelle. Elle est un appel à l’ouverture disciplinaire. Des articles sur la France et l’Europe sont les bienvenus, mais aussi sur les Amériques ou d’autres régions du monde, notamment les pays dits « en voie de développement ».
