Territoire et identité: le rôle du déterminant culturel dans les inégalités régionales de développement à Madagascar : Analyse comparée de l'organisation spatiale des régions du Boeny et du Vakinankaratra

Abstract : In the context of the current conjunction of globalization, a homogenization of certain societies has begun to take place. The individualistic state of mind, the monetary demands of the global society, and the facilitation of trade, brought about by globalization have all led to a sizeable change in human development. But how do these factors affect the societies at the edge of this conjunction? In Madagascar, a link between two simple facts led to this present study. First of all, the central region which houses the national capital has a superior level of development compared to other coastal regions like the West coast. Secondly, those two regions used to be the centre of a major cultural conflict between the two communities, Merina in the center and Sakalava on the coast. We currently tend towards a cultural dimension when looking at development. However due to this social determinism, a reassessment is needed, in order to examine more profoundly the reasons behind these inequities of development. The main hypothesis will state that the cultural dimension buttressed the regional inequities of development. As a geographical study we will focus our attention on spatial organization of the two regional capitals in those two areas: Antsirabe and Mahajanga, linking this with a cultural dimension which will help us understand the national model of development.
