Grands barrages, frontières et intégration en Amérique du Sud

Abstract : In a context of energy tension, mainly due to rising consumption, the construction of large dams was resumed in Latin America ten years ago, as a follow-up to projects carried out by dictatorial governments in the 1970s. These huge projects, which take place on the world’s largest rivers such as the Amazon, the Paraná, the Marañon or the Madeira, are preferentially located in peripheral and unexploited border areas. Securing energy supplies for the main national cities is the first objective, but these projects also allow the integration of marginal territories to national territories, the development of natural resources and the promotion of cross-border cooperation, with results ranging from rivalry to integration.
