    Seeing Politics through Intermediation and Intermediaries

    This seminar proposes to look at politics through the lens of political intermediaries and what they do, i.e. intermediation. Intermediaries can be defined as an assorted group of actors (political brokers, political parties, interest groups, movements) who acts as a hinge between two or more levels, actors or social institutions; while intermediation , as a process, encompasses all the mediations that these actors perform in order to keep the political system intact (Zaremberg, Guarneros-Meza, and Lavalle 2017; Gunther, Puhle, and Montero 2007; Kitschelt 2004; Smith 2007). The question we are interested in relates to the transformations in the roles of these agents and processes of mediation since the neo-liberal transformation has engulfed the processes of public policy formulation, contestation and enactment.

    The papers in the seminar will address a broad range of research questions through acknowledging the regional and national variability of movements across Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. On what issues and identities students mobilise in South Asia? What is the visibility and influence of student politics on society and political process? To which extent student politics is tied to party politics and broader socio-political networks? What means and methods of mobilisation are employed by student activists? How student politics is affected by and reacts to neo-liberalism, consumerism and globalisation?

    Rejuvenating politics? Student politics and the history of youth’s political selves in South Asia

    UW Madison conference (October 2018)

    By drawing attention to the historical formation of both master narratives and counter claims developed by educated youth in the postcolonial period, the panel explores the relevance of campus spaces in the fashioning of political selves. After partition, many scholars regretted that students’ ‘movement’ had given way to sporadic, dispersed ‘agitations’, focused primarily on campus issues. Instead of dismissing group-based demands as ‘parochial’, or looking at students’ dispersion as a problem, this panel proposes to explore the myriad ways in which student politics supported, challenged or re-interpreted mainstream understandings of South Asian societies.

    Security issues in desert areas - Averroès journal

    Revue « Averroès »

    Le désert du Sahara, les régions du Sahel et du Sinaï, sont autant d’exemples d’étendues mobiles, fébrilement animées par les flux mouvants qui les traversent. Loin de l’image courante d’espaces vides et inanimés, ces territoires sont l’objet d’une attention particulière et sont intégrés au processus de mondialisation. Gestion des réservoirs d'eau souterraine, exploitation des hydrocarbures et des ressources minérales, augmentation des migrations, présence de groupes armés et conflits territoriaux sont autant d’enjeux prenant place au cœur de ces régions arides. Ces questions d'ordre économique et énergétique, humain et environnemental sont intimement liées aux représentations géopolitiques de ces espaces et présentent ainsi un aspect sécuritaire important.

    Contested Hybrid Democracy: Endorsing or Revisiting the Liberal Model in non-Western Countries

    IPSA Istanbul 2016

    Democracy has become a worldwide reference in terms of political organization and governance. While the universal character claimed by such a model has largely been theorized from a Western point of view, the variety of uses and appropriations from non-Western countries, including emerging States, remains unexamined. Disappointed with the results brought by the transition paradigm, the hybrid regimes literature tends to assess the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries. Nevertheless, the hybrid regimes analytical frame does not exhaust the question of the inner workings of these regimes, since its scientific referential remains based on Western theories and focuses on the uncompleted democratization processes and dynamics. This panel aims at switching the analytical frame towards the reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries through an assessment of uses and reappropriations of this model by political and social actors. Non-Western countries represent an interesting reflection ground for testing appropriation-reject dialectics regarding the Western democratic model. While this model directly inspires some of these countries (India, South Africa or Turkey), it has been rejected by other countries (China and Russia). Are there emerging models of democracy or counter-democracy models in non-Western countries ? We shall address these questions related to the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries.

    The constitutionalisation of law in China and France

    Rétrospective, perspectives, prospective

    La comparaison de cultures juridiques aussi différentes que celles de la Chine et de la France semble un pari impossible si le terme « constitution » est compris dans une vision immobile du droit, comme dispositif fondateur qui organise les pouvoirs et énonce les valeurs, En revanche, une vision évolutive, rétrospective et prospective, des processus de « constitutionnalisation » pourrait faciliter la compréhension réciproque, rendue désormais nécessaire par la mondialisation juridique en cours. À l’occasion du cinquantième anniversaire du rétablissement des relations diplomatiques France-Chine, l’Institut Adamas et le Centre culturel de Goutelas, en collaboration avec l’ACCR, se proposent d’illustrer cette démarche au cours d’une rencontre franco-chinoise dont les travaux se dérouleront au château de Goutelas, selon le programme suivant.
