This paper discusses the effects of the economic development and metropolisation of Lyon and the social division of space. It ex¬plores the residential distribution of the various socio-economic groups and extrapolates three types of relationships between social and urban change: segregation, ‘embourgeoisement’, and gentrification. In addition economic growth tends to reinforce the social division of space in Greater Lyon. The growing prosperity of cities that have been rich for some time is the driving force behind growing socio-territorial inequalities.

Keywords: Public policies; gentrification; urban change
