La ressource foncière comme ressource politique : une comparaison entre Denver (Colorado – USA) et Montpellier (Languedoc-Roussillon – France)

Abstract : Land resources are political resources. Globally, the conversion of farmland into urban land is more than obvious : it is also the object of a struggle between rival powers, an unevenly distributed and symbolic resource and an institutional issue. In this area, differences in cultures, legal traditions and public policies are said to be considerable. Such differences are at the heart of our comparative study of the issues and the process of urbanization and suburbanization in France and the United States. We compare two configurations that at first glance seem totally divergent. From this starting point, we seek to understand the extent and concrete significance of these differences, and identify convergences that might allow us to draw common lessons on land policy issues and land use in process of urban sprawl.
