L’ambition internationale d’une métropole française : le développement de la diplomatie territoriale de Lille entre 1958 et nos jours

Abstract : This paper aims at providing a short survey of the development of international action in the city of Lille and its agglomeration, focusing on three aspects: politics, with the legitimacy and leadership of the involved communities, geography, with the spatial extent of relations, and history, through the continuity of action and its possible disruptions. The late 1980s were a turning-point: after the town-twinning phenomenon of the 1950s, the international action diversified at the same time as a metropolitan project was clearly asserted by the inter-municipal community created in 1968 (which became the Lille European Metropolis [MEL] in 2015). This action materialized through multi-scale cooperation, across the border with the neighbouring Belgian communities, but also on a European, or even global level, in order to reinforce the region’s attractiveness and to promote a spirit of solidarity.
