La participation citoyenne dans les quartiers populaires en France

Voir la vidéo de la conférence

Il s’agit d’analyser le paradoxe d’une politique de la ville conçue, à l’origine, comme un laboratoire de la démocratie urbaine et qui, au fil du temps s’est technocratisée et a exclu la société civile des processus de décision. La question de la participation est revenue au premier plan de cette politique publique à la suite des révoltes de l’automne 2005, souvent analysées comme le symptôme de déficit d’intégration démocratique des habitants de ces quartiers. Mais les nouveaux mots d’ordre de « pouvoir d’agir » des habitants (traduction française de l’empowerment) ou de « co-construction » des politiques publiques peinent à se concrétiser sur le terrain compte tenu des contraintes structurelles qui pèsent sur la participation citoyenne dans les quartiers populaires français. La récente réforme de la politique de la ville innove néanmoins avec l’introduction d’un nouvel outil: les conseils citoyens.

Reconciling Markets and Politics in a Globalized World:

Views from China and the West

The world’s three largest economies—the European Union, the United States, and China—are engaged in an increasingly contentious and high-stakes debate over whether to grant market economy status to China at the end of this year. China maintains that being granted this status was a guaranteed term of its entry into the World Trade Organization. Yet, last week, the European Parliament passed a non-binding resolution against granting China market economy status, a move that many observers see as a precursor to a binding vote later this year. This ongoing policy debate has enormous economic, commercial, and political implications for key strategic capitals, as well as for broader diplomatic relations between China and its leading trade partners.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion about the significance of these recent developments and what they mean for China’s trade ties and broader diplomatic relations with Europe, as well as with other major economies like the United States.

How Chinese Investment is Shaping European Markets?

Since joining the WTO fifteen years ago, China has greatly broadened its economic engagement with Europe and other parts of the world. Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) in Europe has shifted in recent years from a focus on acquiring resources to one on services and consumer goods in developed market economies. However, asymmetrical market access is a growing concern for the EU, given that Chinese investment in Europe is expanding in economic sectors that are not open to foreign investors in China. Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion between Xavier Richet and Chen Xin on how Chinese outbound FDI is shaping market conditions in EU member states as well as Chinese firms’ efforts to integrate into global value chains. This event is co-hosted by the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy.
