Les politiques de mixité sociale par l’habitat à l’épreuve des rapports résidentiels. Quartiers populaires et beaux quartiers à Paris et à Londres. Lydie Launay

Abstract : Since the early 2000s, the increasing social polarisation of Paris and London legitimates the development of new social mix strategies in a "social rebalancing" of the city perspective. The analysis of their foundations reveals the central role given to housing for "key actors of the city" and key workers, considered as central actors 'relay' of social mixing. The coexistence of these specific categories of the middle classes with popular classes and ethnic minorities would supposedly improve their integration to the city and widely, to the society. Based on empirical work conducted on operations in the low-status and wealthy neighbourhoods, this thesis questions this assumption by analyzing social relationships to residential areas of social groups putting in a situation of co-presence. It highlights four ways of living in the neighbourhood and of coexisting from a multidimensional approach: the social characteristics of individuals, the residential trajectory and how the new residential situation is experienced, and social and physical characteristics of the neighbourhood. In this perspective, it analyses the otherness relationships of individuals that establish the boundaries between them and the “others” through a social reading and also, at varying degrees, a racial reading of the social world.
