Seminar: “What is the future of exurbs in large metropolitan areas? A debate around Paris, London and New York” (Sciences Po, France)

Can suburbanization processes and “exurbs” in Paris, London and New York really be compared and why? What are the main economic, sociological as well as environmental issues they are facing today ? To what extent are these territories, as often described, the heart of today’s political discontent and populist votes (Trump, Brexit, “gilets jaunes”…)? To what extent are they jeopardized by metropolization processes being witnessed worldwide and specifically in such metropolitan areas? Robert E. Lang and Eric Charmes will confront their views on “exurbs” territories and populations in a comparative perspective applied to Paris, London and New York.
