I am interested in the dynamics of transition in rural territories. I mobilize for this purpose the notions of resources, heritage and innovation. I have worked in different geographical contexts, in France and in the Maghreb. My works focus more specifically on the processes of social innovation, territorial qualification, collective initiatives for change and more recently on the transformation of public policies. My questioning is part of a reflection on the place of contemporary rurality and on the relationship to the times of our society.
