Abstract : In the last three decades, cities have become the major recipients of economic globalisation. Urban mutations within this context have transformed the role and functions of these cities. Since the early 1990s this phenomenon, known as metropolisation, has been at the heart of pluridisciplinary studies. The definition of metropolisation initially applied to the large metropolises. However, smaller cities have also undergone substantial mutations. The aim of this thesis is to analyse the transformations that have occurred in those metropolises with a population of between 500,000 and 1,000,000 inhabitants, and to gauge whether these transformations are related to metropolisation processes. Based upon the comparative analysis of five European regional capitals, urban mutations are considered in the light of demographic, socio-economic and political change. The signs of metropolisation demonstrate that these cities play a leading role in the development of their countries, in particular by giving them access to international dynamics. However, these opportunities are fragile as they rely heavily upon economic trends and public politics.
