Hauts-de-Seine is a département in France. It is part of the Ile-de-France region. It is small and densely populated and contains the modern office, theatre, and shopping complex known as La Défense with its modern Grande Arche.

Administration

History

Hauts-de-Seine was largely part of the Seine département, and to a lesser extent of the Seine-et-Oise département, until 1968.

In the 1990s and early 2000s the Hauts-de-Seine got national attention for a corruption scandal pertaining to the misuse of public funds of the département's housing projects, involving former minister and former president of the conseil général of the Hauts-de-Seine Charles Pasqua and other personalities of the RPR party. (see corruption scandals in the Paris region).

Geography

Hauts-de-Seine and two other small départements, Seine-Saint-Denis and Val-de-Marne, form a ring around Paris, known as the petite couronne.
