    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.

    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.
