    Suivant une analyse réaliste des relations internationales, des ‘facteurs objectifs’ ont été longtemps mis en avant pour expliquer le blocage de l’intégration régionale au Maghreb (e.g. le conflit du Sahara). Par une approche constructiviste, cet article a pour vocation d’analyser un facteur subjectif susceptible de freiner ou favoriser l’intégration maghrébine, en l’occurrence les identités nationales.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the global economy and has challenged the best minds to rethink how to design and implement an effective recovery. Countries in the wider Atlantic region have exhibited differential trajectories in traversing the pandemic. A number of countries in Europe succeeded in vaccinating most of their eligible populations, enabling life to return somewhat to normal. A smaller group of countries in Europe could manage infection rates even more ti ...

She is also into politics and has held an electoral mandate, with expertise on equality, training and female entrepreneurship. In her case, the same applies to geography. Born in France, Patricia Ahanda partly grew up in Cameroon, her parent’s country. When her father was posted in ...

Population aging means that now, accordin ...

Decades ago I met Johnny Moss, a descendent of this wild bunch in Las Vegas. He is the greatest poker player of our time, as his biograph ...
