FR2.05.21 “Peopling” Space: The Governance of Populations in Montréal Neighbourhoods

This panel focuses on the practice of “peopling” (peuplement, in French), a form of state action that seeks to maintain or change the distribution of a population within a territory according to specific social, ethnic, religious, or other characteristics. The panel takes its starting point from the recent French-language book, Le peuplement comme politiques, which demonstrated how the practice of peopling has taken shape over the last twenty years in various national and urban contexts. Beginning with a summary of the book’s arguments from one of its co-authors, the panel explores how peopling has emerged, in very different ways, in three Montréal neighbourhoods.
