Dr. Antoine Fleury is a Junior Researcher in urban geography at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). In his research he aims to highlight how public spaces are produced in European metropolises with regard to design, management, and control. He analyzes the changing practices of both public institutions and various stakeholders, linking them to the spatial restructuring of cities. His research interest also includes the study of changing retail geographies in cities, focusing on retailers and public policies.
He has published several articles in scientific journals such as Les Annales de Géographie, Belgeo and Geographica Helvetica. He has also co-edited two books (Espace et rapports de domination, 2015; Le petit commerce dans la ville-monde, 2020), and contributed to the implementation of a design guide for public spaces (Places du Grand Paris, Principes de conception pour les espaces publics du Grand Paris Express, 2019).
