Itinéraires, générations intellectuelles, engagements, sociabilité et réseaux intellectuels, tels nous semblent être les axes principaux d'analyse permettant de rendre compte de la question intellectuelle au Maghreb et principalement de la place et des fonctions des intelligentsias dans les mutations socio-économiques, culturelles et politiques dans l'espace considéré. En partant de la génération intellectuelle définie comme espace historique à partir d'événements fondateurs, nous avons mis au centre des recherches quatre phases principales: celle des chocs coloniaux : fin du 19è et début du siècle, à travers le mouvement réformiste, celle des années d'entre les deux guerres, comme moment particulier nationaliste/ populiste, celle des indépendances, comme moment développementaliste et "tiers mondiste", celle qui démarre dans les années 80, se radicalise sur les dernières années et qui caractérise toujours le moment, comme expression des alternatives aux dominations autoritaires à travers des mouvements sociaux plus autocentrés.

Premiere parti (en français): Le module traite des différentes théories qui sont présentes dans le débat scientifique autour de la définition de diaspora, des différences entre la notion de migration et celle de diaspora et la relevance de cette notion. On examinera les différentes typologies de diasporas et la complexité des enjeux qui a lieu entre diaspora, pays d'accueil et pays d'origine. On traitera de la diaspora juive comme modèle paradigmatique de diaspora et une comparaison sera fait entre diasporas.
Second part (in English): The second part of this module will aim at offering the tools to cope with Diaspora formations in international relations. Diasporas will be analysed as organised networks, able to influence directly the state in which they reside, the homeland and the relations between the two. Moreover, the transnational characteristics of Diaspora network will be taken into consideration as a direct challenge to the nation-state, understood as a centre for loyalty, values and administrative power. Finally we will analyse the relationship between aesthetics and politics, studying the development of Diaspora identities in the era of the Web 3.0.

Objectives: this course will analyse the development of cultural and social identities in the Mediterranean area on basis of comparative research and enquiries in the history of cross-border transfers and overseas relations. History becomes an instrument to study:
1) the Mediterranean area as laboratory for international and intercultural relations;
2) the origins of democratic societies;
3) the political factors: constitutionalism, rights of men, liberty and equality;
4) the international relations of the Mediterranean area comprising the relations of this area with the rest of the world;
5) the reality and the prospects of the Mediterranean Region.


Aims: the course will offer the necessary skills toanalyse the identities, the reality and the prospects of the Mediterranean Region. The course will analyse the actors and the structures here at stake, namely: states, nation-based and transnational economic and social forces; Mediterranean constitutionalism in the historical development; international relations and diplomacy of the Mediterranean area.

Objectives/ Learning outcomes of the course:
1) To understand the importance of the communication in the main programs and international organisms of international Cooperation for the Development.
2) To analyze the situation of the human rights with special emphasis in the Rights to the Information, the Communication and the Cyberspace (Mediterranean Arab Countries)
3) To identify, to interrelate and to analyze the main indicators of development of the knowledge society, development of means, access to the information, freedom of expression, freedom of press, digital breach (Mediterranean Arab Countries)

Objectifs: Le partenariat Euro-méditerranéen a toujours pris la forme de relations économiques, avec des intensités plus ou moins fortes selon les pays. Un des aspects de cet enseignement sera la mise en évidence et la caractérisation de chacun des systèmes économiques et sociaux, tant sur le plan microéconomique que sur le plan macroéconomique. Un deuxième aspect important est l'étude des instruments de politique économique (quand ils existent), leur application et les résultats auxquels ils aboutissent. Nous porterons un regard sur la crise financière de 2008, ses répercussions sur les deux rives de la Méditerranée et les moyens mis en œuvre dans les principaux pays partenaires.

Objectifs: cet enseignement comporte 3 volets, chacun pris en charge par un professeur différent : 1 volet s'intéressant aux relations Maghreb-Europe sous un angle juridique et politique. Cet aspect du module est pris en charge par le Professeur Ahmed MAHIOU. Le second volet concerne les relations euro méditerranéennes à travers l'analyse des politiques mises en place en matière de circulation des personnes. Il est pris en charge par le Professeur Hocine ZEGHBIB. Le troisième volet s'intéresse à la gouvernance des entreprises dans le bassin méditerranéen sous une approche comparative. Il est pris en charge par le Professeur Alain BRIOLE.

The aim of this class is to examine the migration phenomenon that take place in the Mediterranean area through a socio-anthropological and comparative perspective. We shall examine the various situations where a female migration can be observed around the Mediterranean Sea and question the process of adaptation, transformation and preservation of the social relations among genders between the society of origin and the host society in a situation of international mobility. The variability of female population migration demonstrates that the boarders between the different kinds of female migrants are less and less clear and irreversible, and that the past distinctions between commuting migration, stabilized migration, and back migration are continuously challenged by female migrant’s behavior. Combined with its off-center position with regard to Europe, the gender perspective allows us to analyze differently the south(s) and the north(s) and take into consideration changes to the contemporary Mediterranean migration chart.
