Visions et construction d'un territoire, l'Oisans au cours des années 1960

Abstract : A 19th November 1960 French decree gave birth to the interministerial committee dedicated to mountains development. This committee initiated a national policy for touristic development so as to bring more modernity to mountain territories. In the Oisans area, local stakeholders, on the grounds of their own survival, while looking for economic reorientation, agree with this vision as a real identity lobby, through a quest for leisure infrastructures. Controversies about mountain sacking seem to be rubbed out by each village’s hope to become a place dedicated to winter sports. However, both the two rapidly expanding big tourist spots and the national park project bring us to question this uneven dynamics. By analysing the 1960s local press on Oisans’ scale, this article offers to explore, in a historical way and through the prism of the innovation concept, the process through which sports practice, stakeholders and areas interact to bring new territorial realities to life.
