  • Pays de Galles (en français)
    "Le rugby et la langue galloise, d'origine celtique, participe à la forte identité culturelle du Pays de Galles. Mais, l'exploitation du charbon a entraîné l'urbanisation de la côte sud et a créé une opposition entre le Nord et le Sud, née de la révolution industrielle au 19e siècle.
    Depuis, la crise est revenue, favorisant chômage et émigration. Ainsi, cette région périphérique cumule caractères régionaux de cohésion et facteurs d'éclatement et constitue un modèle de région périphérique en voie de reconversion."
