La ville négociée : entre financiarisation et durabilité


Author Info


L’objectif de cet article est de développer un cadre conceptuel, analytique et interprétatif des relations entre « finance, ville et durabilité » peu abordées jusqu’alors en géographie urbaine. Afin de répondre aux enjeux de la transformation des villes contemporaines marquées à la fois par l’intervention d’acteurs financiers et la question de la durabilité, le modèle de ville négociée est proposé pour d’autres recherches en géographie urbaine. Nous développons la thèse de l’apparition d’un rôle nouveau pour les entreprises de développement-construction de grands projets urbains. Situés au centre du réseau des acteurs privés (investisseurs et locataires et/ou exploitants) du marché des projets urbains financiarisés, ces entreprises deviennent des acteurs ancreurs. Formant des coalitions avec les acteurs privés du marché et, selon les villes, avec les acteurs locaux publics et privés, ils sont au centre de nouvelles formes de négociations consistant à traiter d’un côté l’ancrage du capital dans un contexte local avec des investisseurs agissant à une échelle de plus en plus globale et de l’autre certains enjeux de durabilité avec la société locale. La construction de ce modèle résulte de la réunion de trois champs de littérature en géographie urbaine et d’une recherche empirique menée sur de grands projets commerciaux novateurs achetés par des acteurs financiers en Suisse.
