Résister en habitant ? Renouvellement urbain et continuités populaires en centre ancien (Berriat Saint-Bruno à Grenoble et Alcântara à Lisbonne)

Abstract : In a context of intense international competition between cities, old working-class neighbourhoods represent real strategic areas on a local level. Their location within the city, their property and real estate potentialities, and their appeal for populations born of fortunate and qualified social classes, all constitute spatial, social and symbolical interests, that lead public authorities and local private actors to boost and then control a process of reconquest through operations of urban renewal. Some inhabitants, whose presence or moving in are not desired by the institutional action, resist, through their living in, to the change brought by urban renewal. Inhabitants create working-class continuations by their residential presence, the daily practices they display in the neighbourhood or by individual and collective representations. Those different forms of working-class continuations contribute in fine to question the political or market view of old centres urban renewal. This research is based on observations made in two old working-class neighbourhoods, which reconquest, initiated at different times, has not reached the same stage of progress : Berriat Saint-Bruno in Grenoble (France) and Alcântara in Lisbon (Portugal). By favouring the crossing of mobilized views, investigation methods and results, the chosen reasoning aims to understand the diversity of the situations created by urban renewal in old centres, and interpret the variety of changes resulting on a daily basis.
