La « Belle Province » de la science régionale québécoise


  • Claude Lacour
  • Marc-Urbain Proulx


This special issue aims to show some lights on myths and realities of the France ? Quebec relations in terms of Regional Science. Above all language complicities, we are questionning the existence of a specific and original Quebec Regional Science grounded with environment, history, geography, modes of land uses. Analysts in this issue illustrate a real Quebec way of thinking regional problems. Thinkings based on strong personal links with french scientists and schools in a context of north american influences. Quebecers adopt the diversity of readings in Regional Sciences in using a multidisciplinary approach in their analysis. Among them, sociologists are very active and often politically engaged in the community they are observing and modelling. Quebec regional scientists seem to have a preference for empirical findings.
