L'industrie de la sécurité privée, acteur de production de l'espace urbain à Johannesburg

Abstract : This progressive master thesis is part of a field approach using qualitative tools to analyse safety devices. It takes place in the Johannesburg metropolitan area. The latter is both the economic pillar of the South African country and a laboratory in terms of socio-spatial polarization based today on capital rather than ethnicity. Since the end of apartheid, the explosion of different forms of visible and invisible securitization of spaces has reshaped the urban landscape of Johannesburg. Securitization and "insecurities" influence daily life, if not the urbanity itself. It is a question here of thinking about the production of space by the private security actor and how it fits into the process of neo liberalization in Johannesburg.
