Le système urbain indien au 20e siècle

Abstract : India of the 20th century knew an important growing of its urbanisation phenomenon according with the fact that the country was entering its urban transition. The problem is to know how the Indian urban system has evolved during the 20th century and this is the principal aim of my study. There are many studies on the urbanisation of India during the 20th century showing how the urban system has grown globally. While the studies on the urbanisation of India often highlight the metropolization phenomenon presents in the structure of the urban system, they often ignore the interactions between the different scales (national and regional). It appears that those different scale reports can contribute to a more detailed analysis of this system, showing specific situations that analysis alone across the Indian Territory cannot show. The aim is to highlight what phenomena relations between regional level and national level do emerge across the country. To address these questions, this study is split into three. First, the introduction of interaction phenomena between different scales involves a theoretical approach of the urban growth and the urban system. The second part concerns the evolution of the Indian urban growth during the 20th century. The last part concerns the evolution of the Indian urban system. Data on the urban population are analyzed by statistical method in order to highlight spatial phenomena. Results reveal the presence of few unbalanced regional urban system and a national situation which tends to curb this phenomenon.
