Brussels as Capital of Alterity

Originally, Brussels was a flemish city. as it became the capital of Belgium, it was gradually frenchified and so was its periphery. the flemish people then feared that this frenchification would intensify and they obtained the recognition of clear linguistic boundaries. Brussels found itself caught into a territorial straitjacket that does not correspond to its sociological reality. the city-region, five times capital, has become a target for reconquest by the flemish community, a factor of indifference for the Walloons and a paradoxical place, a capital of numerous alterities, which is both one of the causes of the Belgian crisis and an element of explanation for the durability of the country.
