Between the urban and the social, between places and people, between ascending or descending approaches, area-based urban policy has often fluctuated. Which contours have been given in France and abroad? This is the question that the Economic Politcy Planning for French Prime Minister and the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (master "Territories") suggest to focus, debating on the contributions of the recent report of the CAS -, which was published in the French Documentation in December 2012.
Comparison with the public policies abroad - Germany, USA, Netherlands, United Kingdom - illuminates debates hexagonal and identifies strategic orientations facing the spatial concentration of poverty. Thus, in France, the policies since the early 2000s have mostly focused on transforming the city to promote social diversity of the territories called 'disadvantaged', particularly through the National Urban Renewal Programme launched in 2003.
Abroad, however, other options could be used: for example in Germany, where the program "Social City" instead aimed to develop the areas concerned, in terms of urban, economic and social, in s' Based on their inherent potential and without trying to change their sociological composition, or the United States, where the Obama administration has sought to transform these areas into neighborhoods of choice and opportunity.
While urban policy is profiling, the authors of this report present their analysis and submit to the debate at three seminars open to the general public (students, researchers, actors).
