La territorialisation de la régulation économique dans l'agglomération lyonnaise (1950-2005). Politiques - Acteurs - Territoires

Abstract : This thesis analyses the emergence and the settlement process of the economic policy in the urban area of Lyon, during the last fifty years. It develops an interdisciplinary approach of the territorial public action for economic development, on the basis of an economical and a political reading of the theory of regulation.
During the period of economic growth (1950-1975), the central state carried out the economic regulation for the national territory and conceived the necessary tools. Since the crisis, the state delegates responsibilities concerning economic policy to the local level. The thesis combines three points of view for analysing economic policy in both periods: the global economy and its frame of references that may guide public action; the technical and operational forms of economic policy implementation; the modes of governance of economic regulation, with a focus on the relationships between economic and politic spheres in the systems of actors.
The objective of this thesis is to show how the Greater Lyon authority takes on the political leadership for territorial economic regulation in the local system of actors. It shows how the integration of the interests of private firms in public policies is done to the detriment of the traditional role of economic actors such as chambers of commerce. Furthermore, the engagement of the Greater Lyon authority in the competition for economic attractiveness might compromise the respect of the general interest in local public action.
