Abstract : This research aims at understanding the socio-spatial dynamics of conflicts of use related to the environment on the Languedoc-Roussillon coastal areas. Considering and dealing with these opposing forces represent a major step for the legitimacy and the perenniality of integrated management projects for coastal areas. In fact, they are becoming testing grounds for the different types of conflict managment, revealing an emerging environmental mediation. It tends to reduce the level of conflicts by improving the dialogue between disagreeing parties and legitimates the acceptability of the costal areas integrated management's initiatives.
Recurrent spatial configurations are emerging as far as the localization of the conflicts of use are concerned. However, the expression and types of regulation used differ between places (lagoons, suburbia, state, county, etc) and conflicts (urban planning, landscape and species preservation and water and waste management).
The analysis of their conditions of emergence, their modes of expression and the forms of regulation used at the local scale reveal strong interactions between social networks and spatial dynamics. Should a conflict appears and it upsets the socio-spatial practices and representations. Territorialities are reforming while reshaping the structure and patterns of social networks as well as the evolution of strategies and behaviors who, in turn influence the planning system.
