In brief :

  • Nathalie Boutin is a researcher in CERGAM the unit research in management of Aix-Marseille University, where she is conducting a doctoral research to be defended in 2016 and funded by full scholarship from the Labex OTMED (Laboratoire d’Excellence : Objectif Terre-Méditerranée), an interdisciplinary project of the University focusing on the Mediterranean area major changes caused by climate change, human activity, and economic development. She teaches environmental management at IMPGT (Institute of Public Management and Territorial Governance of Aix-Marseille University). Her interests bear on biodiversity management, public management, corporate social responsibility, man environment interactions, and ecosystems services. In partnership with researchers at IMBE (Mediterranean Institute of marine and terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecology – AMU/CNRS/IRD), her current research includes an investigation of biodiversity concerns through two projects : a big alumina plant rejecting wastes in the Mediterranean sea, and a power plant to be converted from coal to biomass. Her project includes other cases along the Mediterranean shores. Her background is in management (Bachelor) and ecological engineering (Master). For her research, she also may rely on practical knowledge of management based on executive positions in private and public institutions during twenty years.

Thématiques de recherche

Sujet de recherche doctorale :

Management territorial de la biodiversité dans un contexte d’urbanisation croissante et de fortes interactions hommes-milieux. Une étude multi-sites.


La question de la biodiversité, apparue au premier plan des préoccupations environnementales au même titre que le changement climatique, a fait l’objet au niveau mondial d’une volumineuse littérature et de nombreux rapports plus ou moins alarmistes. Selon que l’on regarde la question du point de vue des sciences de la terre et de la vie ou des sciences de la société, on dispose de vues complémentaires mais aussi contradictoires. On envisage ici la question de la biodiversité sous l’angle de sa gestion territoriale, axée sur l’étude comparative de plusieurs cas, situés dans le Sud-Est de la France (Bouches du Rhône, France), et sur le pourtour Méditerranéen, qui ont pour point commun d’être implantés au sein d’espaces marqués par d’intenses interactions hommes-milieux qui donnent un tour spécifique et local sur l’enjeu de la biodiversité. Enfin ces espaces sont parallèlement bouleversés par un fait marquant (transition rapide) qui dessine un contexte d’intervention en partie renouvelé pour les organisations publiques et privées locales qui les gèrent. Ce projet de caractère interdisciplinaire mais inscrit dans les sciences humaines et plus particulièrement dans les sciences économiques et de gestion, entend développer un effort conceptuel et théorique important pour faire entrer dans un cadre cohérent un ensemble de données sur la biodiversité, la pression anthropique, les attentes et représentations en matière environnementales, et les décisions des organismes publics susceptibles d’affecter la biodiversité.

Doctoral dissertation project

Territorial management of biodiversity in a context of growing urbanization and intense interactions man‐nature. A multi-site analysis


The issue of biodiversity, hoisted at the forefront of environmental concerns as well as climate change, has fueled a voluminous literature and many reports more or less alarmist. Depending on whether one looks at the issue from the point of view of earth sciences and life sciences versus the humanities and social sciences, there are complementary but also conflicting views. We consider here the issue of biodiversity in terms of its territorial management, focused on comparative study of several groups of cities of the Bouches-du-Rhône (France) and Mediterranean cities, which have in common being located in spaces marked by intense human-environment interactions. This which give a specific and local concern for biodiversity. Those areas, subject to rapid transition, impose a new context of intervention for public and private stakeholders. This interdisciplinary project but inspired in the humanities and especially management sciences, aims at developing an important conceptual and theoretical effort to build a coherent set of data on biodiversity, human pressure, expectations and representations in environmental matters, and decisions of public and private stakeholders affecting biodiversity.
