Summary

This notebook provides a support to the ANR SUBURBIN programme by allowing the diffusion of the texts, fieldnotes, works, maps and first results. The goal of this programme is to introduce a neglected dimension in the debates and analysis of urbanization as of urban economy, the small towns. SUBURBIN seeks to counter a vision of urbanisation as reduced to a process of agglomeration and a competition between global cities. The project’s hypothesis is that there exists a diversity of trajectories of urbanisation, which it seeks to understand with a focus on India’s small agglomerations (See more French/English)
