This study proposes to shed light on the main aspects of the socio-professional profiles of cross-border commuters at the various French borders. Nearly 385,000 cross-border commuters were living in France in 2013. The destination countries of these cross-border commuters are very diverse (mainly Switzerland and Luxembourg). There is a relative territorial specificity of the socio-professional profiles according to the different areas of employment. Cross-border work is a regulatory factor in the different cross-border labor markets, allowing for a quantitative but also qualitative adjustment between reserves and man-power needs. This analysis will thus provide a better understanding of cross-border mobility and, above all, identify their different socioeconomic functions with regard to the countries of destination. For this purpose, we have made use of the 2013 INSEE population census data. [less ▲]

The object of the current Thematic Issue is not to focus on the individuals (the cross-border commuters) but on the organization of the cross-border labor markets. We move from a micro perspective to a macro perspective in order to underline the diversity of the cross-border labor markets (at the French borders, for example) and shed light on the many aspects that impact cross-border supply or demand. Trying to understand the whole system that goes beyond the cross-border flows, the question we address in this thematic issue is about the organization of the labor markets: is the system organized in a cross-border way? Or do the borders still prevent a genuinely integrated cross-border labor market? [less ▲]

This chapter seeks to investigate whether the proximity of a border can be seen as an engine of regional development, or a disruptive element. The impacts of cross-border activity on demographic evolution but also on unemployment or economic activity at the French–Luxembourgish border will be identified. Quantitative data from the municipal level (French census for 2014) will be used, with a special focus on the French border municipality of Longwy (formerly one of the main steel-producing areas in France).

La Suisse et le Luxembourg sont particulièrement concernés par le travail frontalier. Ces deux pays accueillent à eux seuls plus d’un demi-million de travailleurs frontaliers et recourent à la main-d’œuvre frontalière depuis plusieurs décennies. Petits pays dynamiques ayant d’importants besoins de main-d’œuvre, ils se caractérisent par des différentiels liés à la présence de frontières (différentiels de prix immobiliers, de taux de chômage, de salaires, de niveaux d’activité économique … avec les pays voisins). Ces différentiels entretiennent la dynamique du travail frontalier (Belkacem et Pigeron-Piroth, 2016). [less ▲]

Given its central position in Western Europe, France is the European country where cross-border commuting is most intense. Over 350000 residents cross the national border everyday to go to work. Cross-border commuting raises a lot of concerns for planners on both side of each border, especially for provisioning transport infrastructure and local public services but also because it impacts land and housing markets, especially when salary differentials are high. While there is a lot of research about the daily functioning of specific borders (e.g. France-Switzerland or France-Luxembourg), generalization is lacking and spatial heterogeneities impede our understanding of the very determinants of cross-border commuting, such as the role of benefits differentials, transport costs and distance, or the relative availability of jobs at residential places and across the border. Further, these effects are most likely mediated differently by the socio-demographic characteristics of workers, their employment sector, and the quality of their residential environment at large. This suggests that an individual approach and a spatially detailed approach is needed, which contrasts sharply with the fact that most European-wide studies of cross-border commuting are conducted at very aggregated spatial scales (NUTS 2 or 3).

Au pays des trois frontières (Athus en Belgique, Longwy en France, Pétange au Luxembourg), ces territoires ont connu une histoire commune du déclin industriel. Dans le cadre de programme européen de reconversion de ces espaces, l'implantation d'un pôle européen de développement au milieu des années 1980, a constitué le principal instrument de reconversion de ces territoires. Après 20 ans de fonctionnement, le PED a produit différents effets sur la structuration de ces territoires transfrontaliers : une diversification inégale de part et d'autre des frontières du tissu productif local, une accélération des mobilités transfrontalières avec le développement du travail frontalier, un accroissement de la population locale avec de nouveaux profils sociologiques qui marque de nouvelle logique de mobilité résidentielle, ... Si le PED a permis d'amortir fortement la crise du système productif local, il a néanmoins contribué à diversifier les trajectoires de développement territorial de part et d'autre des frontières. On voit se dessiner au pays des trois frontières, un nouveau modèle de segmentation territoriale traduisant la juxtaposition de zones d'activités dynamiques d'un côté de la frontière avec des territoires à vocation résidentielle de l'autre côté de la frontière.

Petits pays ayant d’importants besoins de main-d’œuvre, le Luxembourg et la Suisse attirent tous deux un grand nombre de travailleurs frontaliers. C’est dans une perspective comparative que les 19 auteurs impliqués dans ce Cahier Thématique analysent la situation des travailleurs frontaliers dans les principaux pôles d’emploi transfrontaliers (Luxembourg, Bâle, Genève), mais également au Tessin. En tenant compte des éléments contextuels et méthodologiques, géographes, économistes, sociologues et politologues se focalisent sur les questions d’emploi, le quotidien transfrontalier et les perceptions des frontaliers par la société. Cette approche collective et pluridisciplinaire est résumée par les éditeurs en identifiant des enjeux communs pour le Luxembourg et la Suisse. [less ▲]

Cross-border workers form a little-known but numerous population in Switzerland. Beyond clichés, this contribution brings together the main characteristics of this population based on official statistics and the latest research. The introduction of the Freedom of Movement Agreement did not change the growth trend of the population that remains to live and work in proximity of the border, mostly in France and near-Switzerland agglomerations. Conversely, the occupational areas and levels have diversified. Generally, cross-border workers have no negative influence on the labour market, except on salary level in some economic sectors in Ticino. The initiation of the “priority to Swiss residents” will not change the situation, which relates above all to the economic evolution. [less ▲]

This article questions the impacts of cross-border worker mobility on the economic and social devel-opment of their place of residence. We hypothesize that cross-border mobility produces resources for the worker, the enterprise and the territory, but it can also be a source of constraints. After a geo-graphical framework of the study, this article analyses the main positive territorial impacts of cross-border mobility. It shows that they contribute to the territorial dynamism of these border regions by attracting new sociological profiles of workers, by revitalizing rural territories (through housing), by limiting the increase of local unemployment and by encouraging a new form of in-place economy. Fi-nally, the paper also shows how such mobility can impede the own development of these border terri-tories, such as via a deeper local social stratification and a lack of highly qualified manpower.
