Instabilité structurelle en Méditerranée : entre contournements et raccourcis

Abstract : Considered from a general point of view, the Mediterranean appears at first as a vector of maritime penetration towards the east from the Atlantic coast. Beyond this aspect, the Mediterranean shores present large gulfs, channels, islands... that offer opportunities to make them singular places. The Alps to the north and the Atlas to the south are constraints to the movement of people and goods that define long-distance routes to the Mediterranean shores. On the contrary, several rivers facilitate access to the remote regions of the hinterland. This geographic substratum, generator of strong differences, has played a decisive role for over 25 centuries in the organization of powers around the Mediterranean and their instability.
