Travail, culture et nature : Le développement local dans le contexte des parcs nationaux et naturels régionaux de France
This publication, in French, looks at the links between work, culture and nature in the context of France’s social crisis. Taking national parks and regional nature parks as case studies, it assesses the politics of conservation and their relation to changes that have been taking place in agriculture and rural areas. More specifically, it concentrates on the effect that these parks have had on local populations and the clashes between different interest groups. The work outlines the general social context of the country, with particular attention focused on depopulation, agricultural decline and unemployment and analyses how social, economic and demographic factors have impacted upon rural populations. It also traces the history of conservation ideology and examines French approaches to local development.
