Les espaces publics dans les politiques métropolitaines. Réflexions au croisement de trois expériences : de Paris aux quartiers centraux de Berlin et Istanbul

Abstract : In the centre of European metropoles, public spaces such as streets, squares and gardens changed a lot in the last twenty years. Confronting three cities – Paris, Berlin and Istanbul -, the present thesis shows that public policies have had a primary influence on that change. In spite of local differences, this analysis of public policies shows a permanency, a diversification and a renewal of metropolitan policies in Europe. Policies of urban marketing, mobility management, neighbourhood improvement and festivalisation all converge in investing massively in public spaces. Furthermore, our analysis of the various actors in charge also points to a reconfiguration of production modes. On the one hand, the public actors involved in the process are more diverse than ever and they apply new methods of action. On the other hand, this change also led to including civil society and residents, as well as private, or semi-private, service providers. In central areas moreover, public action is being implemented in a differentiated manner, according to social contexts and levels of centrality. Finally, public action is at times contradictory. Contradictions arise especially in the double choice of proximity and participation. These two founding principles constantly interfere with what makes a city and its public spaces.
