Les politiques culturelles comme un outil de régénération urbaine : le cas de la Corne d'Or, Istanbul

Abstract : As of 1980s, cities begun to question their position and role in the global system with growing competition among global cities and their intramural relationships. In this context, the combination of urban regeneration and cultural policies has become one of the major processing tools that exposes the socio-economic changes in urban space and renews and/or creates an image of the city, Furthermore, the positioning of public and private actors in the decision making process is one of the important issues which differentiates projects, their socio-economic effects and the degree of integration of the projects in the transformation process. Urban regeneration, the magic word in the 2000s, became one of the main tools that public actors rely on in order to transform Istanbul. The Golden Horn is one of the important areas where we see how cultural policies and urban regeneration combine in urban areas and the regeneration process differs based on breaking points that depend on the position of public and private actors. First, this thesis shows that experiences of culture-led urban regeneration of Istanbul and Golden Horn have similarities to international experience, however we also note that they differentiate significantly at certain points because of the positioning of the actors in the decision-making process, disconnection and discontinuity of overall vision of public actors Second, the analysis explains how culture has been integrated into the image of Istanbul through urban regeneration projects developed by this vision although these projects are isolated in urban space that brings a socio-economic disconnection.
