Le bassin de vie, un territoire porteur de ruralité aux marges de l'Île-de-France

Abstract : Rural space is not easy to identify because of the domination of cities; the latest zoning of urban areas (2010) by INSEE (National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies) divides the French territory according to the degree of influence of cities in order to avoid the urban/rural partition. The disappearance of the term “rural” in this zoning makes a statistical analysis of this space difficult. The category “Life Basin” (INSEE, 2003) could contribute to its identification but it is going to be readjusted and it suffers from the proximity to the great urban centres. Despite the difficulties of rural space to find a statistical format, especially at city limits, could it be grasped through local territorial structures that claim their rural identity to emancipate themselves from dense cities? The reflection is based on a monographic approach (in the west of Paris) in order to understand the different forms of action.
