La métropole comme demande politique locale de territoire : le cas de Lyon

Abstract : Focusing on the recent French territorial reform creating metropolitan institutions (known as MAPTAM law), the aim of this paper is to understand how government reformist injunction meets the ongoing local discussions carried out in Lyon. Analysing the “Métropole de Lyon” institutional process allows us to reverse the French traditional centre/periphery model by underlining how territorial stakeholders build their own metropolitan project and then force it on the legislature. More specifically, this new metropolitan institution is not only based on functional considerations but has to cope with the strategies of local dominant actors. In other words, this paper asserts that the Lyon metropolitan institution, as defined by the MAPTAM law, is the answer to the “demand for territory” made by political local leaders.
