Les recompositions territoriales dans le Maroni : relation mobilité-environnement

Abstract : Territorial Re-composition in the Maroni : the Mobility-Environment Relationship. -- The socio-spatial dynamics in the hydrographic basin of the Maroni (at the border between French Guyana and Surinam) shed some light on the crossroads of the disciplinary fields of migration and environment. Beyond the ecological dimension to which it implicitly refers, this junction fits well within the wider theme of the relations between territory, society and resources, for which human mobility is a key of analysis. The evolution of spatial organisation of the groups of Marrons settled on the banks of the Maroni since the 18th century is indistinguishable from capacity for mobility. It remains a condition for the exploitation of resources (auriferous in the valley and trade in the estuary), a stake in social resources and territorial appropriation that plays a role in the creation of relational spaces.
