Global urbanities

In order to renew the debate on the global dimension of the urban environment, the focus here is on the rise of urban diversity and cosmopolitanism, particularly in relation to the growing function of receiving migrants and people with various forms of mobility. It is also a question of taking into account the spread of global urban government frameworks and the tensions surrounding them, through the prism of an analysis in terms of inclusion / exclusion, and urban resilience.

Three sub-themes are therefore considered as priorities: socio-spatial practices and urban cultures in the context of the affirmation of urban cosmopolitanism; the political construction of urban rights, associated with reference frameworks circulating between North and South and between South and South; the impact of new digital technologies on urban practices.
