À la recherche du politique dans les villes

Abstract : This paper is a contribution to the understanding of politics in contemporary, globalizing societies as seen from the perspective of cities rather than the state, on the assumption that contemporary urbanization and globalization processes open up possibilities for policy differentiation and policy regulation in cities. This global urbanization challenges the politics identified with a place and leads to a renewal of questions of inequality, justice, democracy, citizenship, etc. Differently from the state, the accumulation of material investments in cities makes them original concentrations of technologies which can be analyzed with the sociology of science as assemblages of socio-technical systems where politics is understood in pragmatic terms of daily interactions.
