CONFERENCES

1. Conference: "Syrie : Génèse, dynamique et enjeux du mouvement de révolte", EHESS, Paris, 10 mai 2012

Dans ce cadre, comment appréhender les causes et les enjeux de cette révolte ? Faut-il y voir les conséquences de transformations plus anciennes des modes de régulation politique ? Qui sont les protestataires et de quelles façons expriment-ils leurs revendications ? De quelles ressources disposent-ils pour mener à bien leur lutte dans un contexte de répression maximale ? Et enfin, comment expliquer la longévité du régime malgré l'ampleur croissante de la révolte ?  Les intervenants réunis autour de cette journée d'étude tenteront d'apporter des éléments de réponse à ces questions.

2. Conference : "Révolutions arabes et questions palestiniennes : perceptions croisées et mobilisations connectées", EHESS, Paris, 30 mai 2012

Organisée par l'IISMM / EHESS, le Collège de France, le Laboratoire de Recherche Historique Rhône-Alpes.  Dans le contexte des révolutions arabes qui se sont succédées au fil de l'année 2011, la question palestinienne occupe une place paradoxale. D'un côté, ces révolutions ont redonné de la pertinence à un langage politique et à des imaginaires nationaux arabes. Dans ces circonstances, où est l'enjeu palestinien, généralement considéré comme central ?

D'un autre côté, à court terme à tout le moins, les Palestiniens apparaissent comme curieusement absents, à la fois comme acteurs et comme enjeu des mouvements de protestation. Les mobilisations politiques arabes en faveur de la Palestine sont-elles distendues du fait du recentrage des revendications révolutionnaires sur des enjeux nationaux, et de perceptions peut-être plus ambiguës à l'égard de la question palestinienne dans certains pays du monde arabe ? Ou sont-elles renouvelées par l'effet conjugué des réseaux électroniques, de la mise au centre des revendications de l'exigence de dignité des personnes, et de l'expérience de la solidarité révolutionnaire ?

5. International Colloquium: "Revolts and Transitions in the Arab World: Towards a New Urban Agenda?", French Center for Research in Cairo (CEDEJ), 7-8 November 2012

This international colloquium aims to discuss the urban dimension of the great changes in the Arab world, from the origins of the 2011 revolutionary episodes to the present experiences of democratisation, along with phases of political transition and socio-economic crisis in which
states are still entangled. Our objective is to (re)consider processes of urbanisation and urban practices, by the yardstick of the political, economic and social issues relevant in the region since the beginning of the decade. Researchers in social sciences and experts on Maghreb, Middle-East and Arabian Peninsula will compare their different points of view. Thus, this colloquium aims to contribute to the revitalization of urban studies in the Arab world, as aligned to economic and political analysis.

Five topics structure this call for contributions:
1. The urban dimensions of revolts
2. Living in cities in revolt and transition
3. Legacies of the past: details and questions about urban action of the « former regimes »
4. Elections and new political powers: the urban agenda in question
5. Rethinking sustainable urban development: proposals from civil society and silent partners

This multidisciplinary colloquium is willing to collect communications highlighting recent fieldworks, or experts' reports and critical analyzes. Case studies or comparative analyzes will be welcome, from young researchers, (post)doctoral students and experienced researchers. We strongly encourage proposals (eg feedbacks) from NGOs, associations, national and international experts, etc.

Proposals for papers (5000 signs), and a brief biography or CV, can be sent in French or English. The dead line to submit a proposal is may 15th 2012 ! Information http://www.cedej-eg.org/spip.php?article502
