L’Europe méridionale depuis 20 ans : dépeuplement, dépopulation et renouveau démographique

Abstract : In Europe, a lot of spaces (mainly rural) have found for 10 years the way of positive growth after several decades of decrease. However, this recovery should not hide the continuous decline of such territories. Moreover, this apparent demographic renewal has to be questioned in order to imagine its durability. The goal of this article is to explore the demographic dynamics of four States of the South of Europe (Portugal, Spain, France and Italy) during the two last decades. After having studied the role of dynamic migratory and natural in this growth, we analyze the age structures of the territories in order to question about the future dynamic. There are different scenarios according to the regions, which put forward national specificities. The final result is the reconsideration of the demographic renewal on two aspects. First of all, there remains a significant number of territories which do not experience growth. They are likely to continue their decrease. Then, the recovery noted since 10 years could be very quick.
