Abstract

Proximity is the subject of attention: local management, local democracy, exaltation of "locally elected representatives". But what does the notion of proximity, as a sociological concept, as a category of experience, as an instrument of action and political representation, or as spatial scale? How do you build, through everyday practices, for attachment to places, through the development of public projects ... ? The area is there a social space or territory intervention? A set of contributions between France and Québec.

La proximité fait l'objet de toutes les attentions : gestion de proximité, démocratie de proximité, exaltation des "élus de proximité". Mais que signifie la notion de proximité, comme concept sociologique, comme catégorie de l'expérience, comme instrument de l'action et de la représentation politiques, ou comme échelle spatiale ? Comment la construit-on, par des pratiques quotidiennes, par l'attachement à des lieux, par le développement de projets publics... ? Le quartier est-il un espace social ou un territoire d'intervention ? Un ensemble de contributions franco-québécoises.
