Lise Bourdeau-Lepage

Lise Bourdeau-Lepage is professor of geography at the Université Lyon‑3 Jean Moulin. She is a member of the “Environnement, Ville, Société” mixed research unit (CRGA – Centre de recherches en géographie et aménagement). Her research in urban geography and urban economics takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of urban recomposition and growth processes (urban forms, residential patterns, urban sprawl, megacity formation and sociospatial segregation) and metropolization (including the role of cities in the world and in history) in conjunction with the issue of sustainable development. Her current work focuses on sociospatial inequalities in the city, Greater Paris, the measurement of individuals’ well-being and the role of nature in the city.

Her publications include Évaluer le bien-être sur un territoire. Comprendre pour agir sur les facteurs d’attractivité territoriaux (available for free download), in May 2020, Nature en ville : désirs et controverses (Libraire des Territoires, 2017), Nature en ville : attentes citadines et actions publiques (Editopics, 2014, co‑edited with Roland Vidal), “Grand Paris” (a special issue of the Revue d’économie régionale et urbaine, 2013, co-edited with Franck Vallerugo), Regards sur la ville (Anthropos, 2012), “Repenser la ville” (an issue of the journal Géographie, Économie, Société, 2011) and Économie des villes contemporaines (Economica, 2009; co‑authored with Jean-Marie Huriot).
