ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of the globalization and urbanism of Guadeloupe, a European peripheral region. Natural events influenced the urban development of towns in the territory. In addition, urban thinking and urban realities are weak. Actions of individuals and their commitment to urban development were uncontrolled. The failure of the assimilation of law in Guadeloupe and the fact that it is far from the mainland might explain the region's inability to achieve the urban process.
