Globalisation et construction territoriale : comment débloquer la trajectoire d'un complexe d'industries lourdes ?
The paper deals with the trajectory of a big agglomeration of heavy industries (refinery, chemical industry, steel industry) located in the south of France. It points out 1. how this industrial agglomeration on one hand and the area in which it is located on the other hand have been building and specifying each other through out the XXth century, 2. how this reciprocal building and specifying have led to the capitalization of a whole set of knowledge and know how based resources in this area so that it is a potential wealthy industrial place, 3. how, reversely, this capitalization of resources is also, indissociably, a capitalization of constraints so that the scope of possible affectation of resources is restricted. Since resources tend to became constraints, the capacity of local collective forces to make productive activities evolve in a new innovative way are bounded. The paper questions : how to overpass the constraints appeared ? Classification JEL : R11, O18, R58.
