Une expérience de planification urbaine postcoloniale : le cas des villes nouvelles indiennes (1947-1991)

Abstract : The paper questions the development of new towns in postcolonial India in order to analyse the transformations of urban planning. Because new towns are supposed to constitute a tabula rasa, they can be understood as a showcase of urban planning politics. Several new towns were developed in India after Independence. The analysis of successive kinds of greenfield developments highlights the transformations of urban policies, scales of urban planning and urban stakeholders in postcolonial India. Based on critical typologies and in-depth studies of various new towns, the paper aims to build an analytical framework for a better understanding of the contemporary foundations.
