Les aspects de la crise urbaine à Nîmes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Since the early 1970's the agglomeration of Nîmes has had to resist the effects of the urban crisis in spite of large investments. As a consequence of the collapse of industrial activities, the closing down of many plants, the insufficient development of services and commerce, Nîmes is becoming one of the most important centers of unemployment in the region. Production activities are rapidly decreasing in the suburbs which are becoming dormitory boroughs. The town-center, a political stake, but the destiny of which has not been settled yet, presents the strength and durability of tradition. A general restructuration has been going on since 1975 and seems likely to succeed.
