The country society in Western Pyrenees was characterized by a strong communal organization, by family primacy over person, by the coparcenary and inalienability of family's property, by important rights of user over collectives lands, by preferentiel relations with Spanish Pyrenees. Space had a pre-eminent function from which depends the peopling evolution. The study of demographic behaviour shows a differential demographic transition compared with France. Country people is now a minority. The mountain space became a stake for Head Power, and then, with decentralization, for Local Power, and an object of conflicts. More than a work place, to-day mountain is a place of abode and leisure. We must look at the future with rationality in economic administration and for protection of biological diversity| which means reforms of process decision for space development. - (L'A.)
