Dynamiques spatiales et enjeux territoriaux des processus de patrimonialisation et de développement touristique. Etude comparée des gorges de l'Ardèche et du Karst slovène.

Abstract : The aims of this work is to observe geographical trajectories of areas where we can observe, at the same moment, "natural" heritage and tourism processes. It is a question to take shape in which measure these interactive articulation can be translated by an emergence of "tourist region", even "tourist territory", in the particular context of "natural" areas, for which the tourist occupancy lean on landscape valorization.
A comparison between the Ardeche gorges region and the Slovenian Karst allowed us to understand the "tourism-heritage" dialogical and to feature networks logics between exo- and endo-karstic sites (canyon/ gorges, karstic landscape, tourist cave).
While the first part of this work presents the interests of this comparison and work fields (chapters 1 and 2), the following three parts examine the spatial dynamics and the territorial implications of tourism/ heritage couple. Chapters 3 and 4 take shape the various forms that this couple can take, featuring their dialogical character and the mobilization of heritage processes in tourism development projects. The third part (chapters 5 and 6) measure the spatial registration of this dialectical relationship: it is question to observe how the interactions between heritage processes and tourist development can be translated by the emergence of "tourist region". Finally, the fourth and last part (chapters 7 and 8) proposes a questioning on the "tourist territory" notion: around the Ardeche gorges, this part observes the existence of "tourist territory" by crossing tourist populations' territorialities and stakeholders' games.
