СОРОК ЛЕТ ФРАНКО-РОССИЙСКИХ СРАВНИТЕЛЬНЫХ ИССЛЕДОВАНИЙ ПО ГЕОГРАФИИ ГОРОДОВ: ПЕРЕОСМЫСЛЕНИЕ ОПЫТА
A session of the international conference devoted to the centennial of the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, 4–6 June 2018) was dedicated to the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the official French−Russian cooperation in urban geography. It was set up in the 1970s by the Institute of Geography, USSR Academy of Sciences, the Central Institute for Urban Planning, on the one hand, and the University Paris X Nanterre (Laboratory of Urban Geography), on the other. The cooperation was interrupted in the early 1980s before perestroika but resumed and led to a number of publications in Russia and France. The objective of the paper is to summarize the experience of the long-term cooperation between Russian and French geographers in urban studies and to consider some contemporary problems in this field in two countries.
