La production et la gestion de l'espace portuaire à vocation industrielle et logistique. Les grands ports maritimes français : gestionnaires d’espaces infrastructurels

Abstract : Legacies from the Glorious Thirty still contribute to shape French industrial and logistic port spaces to a large extent, from morphological, economic and institutional point of views. During this period, maritime industrial development areas have been created. They were managed and operated by the state, through dedicated public bodies named ports autonomes. The globalization of the maritime industry and the liberalization of the port sector which started during the 1980s have unsettled this system. These two tendencies have led to the adoption of the “landlord port” management model by main ports worldwide. In this model, port operation is conducted by private enterprises while public port management entities (or port authorities) focus on planning, developing and managing land in the port area. In France, this transition occurred with the port reform of 2008, through which ports autonomes became grands ports maritimes. This PhD research aims at understanding the effects of these changes on port land planning, development and management, through the analysis of the practices of the port authorities of French main seaports. The latter are still under the control of the state, but their autonomy and their competencies have been enlarged. While they traditionally focus on the construction and the maintaining of port infrastructures, their interventions tend to spread in space and to diversify. The trajectory of port space management and development echoes that of other infrastructural spaces (rail or airport spaces). This work is related to academic literature on planning, and it contributes to shed light on the continuities and ruptures of state intervention in territorial planning and development in the last decades.
