Who represents those who are not allowed to vote? The Raval Project was born out of the realisation that a lot of public attention in the aftermath of the 2014 European elections was devoted to European citizens who chose not to vote. Fewer spoke of those who were unable to vote. This project decided to focus on those who could not participate in these elections even if they wanted to, i.e. third country nationals living in the EU.

    Nous célébrons, le 8 mars de chaque année, la Journée internationale des droits de la femme. En cette occasion, il est utile de rappeler quelques faits stylisés et observations d’ordre général sur la position qu’occupe la femme dans l’économie marocaine. Face aux constats que l’on dressera ci-dessous, le moins que l’on puisse dire est que l’instant n’est pas à la célébration mais à l’action : la participation de la femme marocaine à l’activité économique demeure relativement faible ...
