The workshop “Margins, Marginalities, Marginalization and Contestation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)”, which is proposed here, will examine the margins and forms of marginalities, spatial, economic, social, cultural and political existing in the MENA, as well as the various processes of marginalization that produce them.

Le colloque « Marges, marginalité, marginalisation et contestation en Afrique du Nord et Moyen Orient (ANMO) » dont on propose ici les grandes lignes s’interrogera sur les marges et les formes de marginalités, spatiales, économiques, sociales, culturelles et politiques existant en ANMO, ainsi que sur les divers processus de marginalisation qui les produisent.

Research Seminar held at the British Institute in Amman, 28-30 September 2013
by Thimar

This discussion seminar was held in partial fulfillment of a British Academy ‘Arab Spring’ Award to CBRL to investigate rural transformations leading up to and during the Arab Uprisings. Its main feature was the screening and associated discussion of a documentary film by Ray Bush (Leeds University) and Habib Ayeb (Université-Paris 8) on their fieldwork in Tunisia and Egypt in 2013 funded by the same award. The seminar brought together a group of researchers investigating agriculture, labour and environment, to provide feedback on the first cut of the film, as well as to share their own research experiences.

The region that was the cradle of agriculture exhibits today the greatest food insecurity in the world. Its stark dependence on imported food is not infrequently treated as a technical problem arising from natural aridity exacerbated by climate change, from population growth, or, less commonly, from macro-economic policy. All are critical factors.
