    11. Ireland / Northern Ireland: Londonderry and its region, a debated border region in mutations

      Publishing date:

      May 11, 2020

      Londonderry is located in the north-west of the Isle of Ireland, on the southern extremity of the vast Lough Foyle Bay. It is also very close to the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Londonderry is situated in a very rural and isolated region. The city and its port play a central role in the economy of the region, as far as neighbouring County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. More than twenty years after the beginning of the peace process in Northern Ireland, Northern Irish society is a post-conflict society that is still deeply marked by intercommunity tensions, which continue to take place in Londonderry, as everywhere else in Northern Ireland. The way Brexit is going to restructure the place and role of the border is bound to have major urban, social and (geo)political consequences in Londonderry.

    13. Intense sequence for CNES, DLR and JAXA- Hayabusa2 and MASCOT arrive at asteroid Ryugu

      Publishing date:

      June 27, 2018

      The Japanese Hayabusa2 space probe has reached the end of its 3.2-billion-kilometre journey with its passenger, the French-German MASCOT (Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout) lander. Launched in 2014, Hayabusa2 has completed three orbits of the Sun in four years, after which it began a few weeks ago its very slow approach to its final destination. Since today, Hayabusa2 is now escorting Ryugu at a close distance of some 20 kilometres, collecting images and data from this celestial object that spins on itself in a little more than seven and a half hours. MASCOT is scheduled to land on the asteroid in early October.

    15. United Kingdom- Oxford: A traditional English rural area turning into a globalized node of the knowledge economy

      Publishing date:

      April 16, 2020

      West of Greater London, Oxford and Oxfordshire epitomize the ideal English, green, rural landscape. In its center, the river Thames, central to the English identity, meanders. But this area is also transformed by the urbanisation process underway in the South East around Greater London. It is part of the fast growing commuter belt generating a demand for new housing developments and transport infrastructure. Finally the Oxford area tries to position itself as a world-class innovation cluster and to compete in order to bolster its economic growth. This region has many amenities it can rely on making it a very attractive place. The dynamics transforming this area play at different scales. (local, national, world) and may lead to conflicts that the different players, defending diverging interests, will have to solve. The future choices made will reveal the direction the United Kingdom will choose in the post Brexit era opening before us.

    18. United States- Southern Manhattan: Between the Global and the Local- The transformations of a multifunctional urban space.

      Publishing date:

      July 10, 2019

      Between the Hudson River (to the west) and the East River, the southern tip of Manhattan Island is the historic center of New York City, veritable global city, at the heart of the American megalopolis. As often as it's associated with monotony or nonchalance, it's linked to abundance and luxury--New York is a city of contrasts, which is constantly reinventing itself. Inhabited, occupied, while simultaneously engaged in globalized phenomena (economic competition with other global cities and increasing ecological risks also confront it), this space is situated at the junction of global, metropolitan, and local scales and forces. In this context, the city is adapting and transforming itself in response to these stakes, all the while preserving its unique character.
