This podcast is performed byHéctor Sánchez Margalef. Raval is a multicultural quarter in the center of Barcelona and CIDOB has a porject about integration and development in this area. 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.

    Addressing inequalities in all their forms has emerged as one of the major global challenges faced by numerous countries across the globe, particularly in Africa.

    Août, l’économie plonge. La production est en vacances, les investisseurs temporisent. Le volume de travail tombe au-dessous du minimum ordinaire, entraînant au passage un relâchement de la discipline et de l’effort. Un mois durant, l’économie est en mal de repères et s’éloigne de ses objectifs ; elle perd beaucoup de sa rationalité et n’apparaît plus tout à fait dans une logique de productivité et de compétitivité. Le manque à gagner qui en découle se retrouve dans les bas de bilan ...
