Cangia, Flavia ; Zittoun, Tania

In: Migration Letters, 2018, vol. 15, no. 1, p. 1-16

This special issue aims at understanding “expatriate” mobility with a special focus on the role of family and intimacy, and brings together different case-studies, built through different theoretical perspectives.

La pertinence de l’approche territoriale

Crevoisier, Olivier

In: Revue d’Economie Régionale & Urbaine, 2010, vol. 5, p. 969-985

Using an approach which takes space and time into account brings an original explanation to numerous contemporary questions. Researches on Territorial innovation models (TIMs - MOULAERT and SEKIA, 2003) had and still have considerable impact on innovation studies in a broad range of fields (political economy, geography, sociology, administrative and political science, etc.). We therefore believe...
