Établissements d'hébergement pour adultes handicapés en France : enjeux territoriaux et impacts sur la participation sociale des usagers. Application aux régions Ile-de-France et Haute-Normandie

Abstract : As part of an approach that combines social geography and spatial planning this PhD dissertation analyzes the causes and consequences of territorial disparities in residential care facilities for adults with disabilities in France. It aims to analyze the origin of the differences and their effects on the daily lives of residents. We are interested in the spatial distributions of the equipment but also in the spatial practices of residents. The goal is to capture the impact of regional disparities on the human rights of persons with disabilities (i.e. to choose where to live, the right to mobility and the right to a social space). This work uses a variety of methods and tools. A quantitative analysis measures the spatial distribution of the facilities, and its evolution over the last forty years. Interviews with former associations and administrative actors and access to archives provide information on the decision processes and power relationships. Finally, visiting 23 facilities for adults with physical disabilities, in the Ile-de-France and Haute-Normandie can help to understand the territorial integration of institutions. Interviews with 81 residents allow for an understanding of the collective and individual practices which take place in a more or large area surrounding their home. They vary in relation to the residential care localization. The questions raised by this study are not only geographical ones. They open a broader discussion on the social participation of persons with disabilities and on social challenges.
