Espaces urbains et mouvements sociaux : de la transformation de l’espace à la mobilisation dans l’espace. Les exemples de Barcelone et de Valence de 1968 à 2008

Abstract : The Mediterranean coastline is a tremendously attractive area, especially in Spain. On the one hand, this attraction was reflected by the development of mass tourism, and, on the other hand, by growing phenomena such as land speculation. It has thus revealed to what extent political, economic and social spheres interact with each other within a city, in a sometimes harmonious, sometimes conflictual way. Barcelona and Valencia share numerous common characteristics – both are port cities and the capitals of autonomous communities. Some of their districts give a better insight into the continuities and discontinuities that exist in the planning and perception of the Spanish and Mediterranean spaces. In these two areas, the tensions and conflicts – fueled by re-arrangement projects – also reveal the connections that tie inhabitants to their neighborhood, the way people perceive their living areas, the tensions that divide communities up, and the disagreements with authorities. The Mediterranean urban space revolves around weak balances that Cabanyal and Barceloneta epitomize. In 1960, toward the end of the Franco dictatorship, vast re-arrangement works on the coastline of the two considered urban areas were initiated, triggering a mass mobilization of collective forces. They were replaced by other larger focusing on national issues related to the crisis that Spain has been undergoing since 2008. In this way, the four considered decades enable a better understanding of the mechanisms, practices, and phenomena that drove the social movements caused by the transformation of the metropolitan space, at a time when Spain also experienced deep political, social and economic upheavals.
