Abstract

The French capital of Paris has had a long history of urban development dating from the 3rd century BC. Founded on the island of the river Seine as a fishermen's settlement, Paris has grown into one of today's leading global cities. Paris is a place of constant changes and transformations; be it in political, demographical, cultural, economic or urbanistic terms. Throughout its history, the city faced many geographical and social processes which led to its current status of a global city. Its dominance will always be felt, regardless of the geographical context of our research. Today, Paris is trying to balance its positive and negative developmental processes, and also direct its developmental path towards establishing its place in the global economy while, at the same time, preserving its tradition, culture and social integrity.
