The port as a territory: an exceptional space or a common good? Discussing deficiency in port governance

Abstract : For the past twenty years or so, the global harbour space has undergone a real transition. The management model of " the landlord port " has gradually stood out as the dominant model of harbour management in the world. In many countries, the State grants terminals to private operators and transforms the status of Harbour Authorities. They still pilot the port development strategy but lose their functions in port operation. This backward move of the State places the harbour space in a paradoxical situation, between missions of general interest and the defense of private interests. Can we still consider the port as a common good? Two visions on this community can be expressed: an economic vision and a civic vision.
