Abstention et mathématiques électorales.

Enka Blanchard | 03.06.2022

Avec plus de 3 millions de personnes ayant voté blanc ou nul, 28 % d’abstention et une marge de victoire bien plus faible qu’en 2017, de nombreuses analyses sont possibles, mais la plupart indiquent à minima une dissatisfaction générale par rapport au système électoral. Le barrage républicain qu’on a pu observer sur les cartes n’a pas la [...]

France, une société géographique.

Jacques Lévy | 02.06.2022

The geography of the presidential election's second round is both simple and strong. It reveals a very marked opposition in terms of urbanity gradients and is more marked than the age, diploma or professional divides. The issue of inhabiting, where the voters' margins of autonomous choice are the most significant, shows the best resonance with political orientations. [...]

France dorée, France rouillée.

Ce que nous montre la carte des densités de suffrages.

Patrick Poncet | 31.05.2022

Using an original cartographic technique combining coloured layers, the article presents the vote density map for the second round of the French presidential election of 2022. This cartography offers an alternative to electoral cartograms, keeping the usual location and shape of the territories while highlighting the electoral weight of the different areas of the country. Secondly, the article maps the useful electoral territory of E. Macron, and symmetrically highlights the abstract and impractical nature of Lepéniste electoral geography. [...]

La France urbaine de Yannick Jadot.

Matthias Kowasch | 30.05.2022

With 4.63% of the vote, the leader of Europe Écologie les Verts (EELV), Yannick Jadot, achieved the second best result of an ecologist candidate in a presidential election - a score, however, far from the hopes raised by the intermediate elections of 2019 and 2020. [...]

Mélenchon et Zemmour.

Hervé Le Bras | 24.05.2022

In addition to the collapse of the right, the presidential election was the scene of two important facts analysed here: the appearance of a Zemmour vote and the consolidation of the Mélenchon vote, suggesting that an extreme right - extreme left opposition was in the making. Indeed, the geography of the Zemmour vote and its sociology are closer to the inaugural FN vote of 1984 than to the Marine Le Pen votes of 2017 and 2022. As for the [...]

Cartes sur table.

Jacques LévySébastien PiantoniJustine Richelle et Vinicius Santos Almeida | 23.05.2022

Voici une sélection des cartes publiées dans Le Grand Continent  le 13 avril 2022 qui nous a autorisés à les republier. S’y ajoutent de nouvelles cartes réalisées après le second tour. Dans les deux cas, elles ont été réalisées par le pôle Cartographie de la chaire Intelligence spatiale de l’UPHF (Jacques Lévy, Sébastien Piantoni et Justine Richelle) avec [...]

L’hospitalité urbaine au risque de la contagion. Peer review

Comment continuer à recevoir les plus précaires tout en les espaçant les uns des autres ?

Joan Stavo-DebaugeMaxime Felder et Luca Pattaroni | 17.01.2022

This paper interrogates the social and spatial consequences of lock-down and “barrier” measures for newcomers and precarious foreigners in the city of Geneva. Linking these measures to the question of urban hospitality, the article documents the paradoxical transformations of the “hospitable milieux” that usually offer newcomers — and established “undocumented” migrants — the possibility to “take place” in the city and to stay there somewhat poorly. Addressing the case of “domestic workers” as well as “low-threshold” shelters and the [...]
