NAQD
Share |


English:
The Algerian journal of social criticism, NAQD, is the first and only independent Maghreb journal contributing to the development and circulation of contemporary critical reflection. Published annually in French and Arabic, articles discuss key issues affecting the societies of Algeria, Maghreb and elsewhere in the Arab-speaking world.

NAQD was founded in 1991 by a group of Algerian academics and intellectuals as an independent critical project; its main aim is to shed light on current problems by instigating a politically independent, critical, and rationalist discourse. NAQD is entirely independent of government and relies on subscriptions from libraries and universities in North Africa, Europe and the US.


Français :
La Revue NAQD d'études et de critique sociale est une publication bilingue (français-arabe) qui paraît en Algérie. Tirée à 2000 exemplaires, sa diffusion se fait par abonnements et par vente en librairie. Elle est expédiée par courrier aux différents abonnés (Universitaires, intellectuels, associations, bibliothèques et autres institutions académiques) au Maroc, en Tunisie, en Égypte et Liban, dans certains pays européens (France, Suède, Espagne, Allemagne, Italie) et en Amérique (États-Unis, Canada, Mexique).

Les contributions que nous publions sont des études portant sur les problèmes de société vécus dans la région du Maghreb et du Moyen-Orient mais aussi dans le Sud global. Elles sont destinées à un public plus ou moins large de lisants/écrivants ainsi qu`a des chercheurs dans le domaine des sciences humaines et sociales. La rédaction intègre dans chaque numéro des articles portant sur un thème dominant. Des articles rédigés en anglais, allemand, espagnol sont régulièrement traduits en arabe ou en français pour permettre au public le plus large possible d’y avoir accès. Il est ainsi possible, pour les lecteurs ou abonnes anglophones, d`accéder à certaines contributions directement en anglais (seulement à la demande).

La Revue NAQD est l'une des seules publications au Maghreb qui ouvre à un débat d'idées et contribue à élargir le champ de la pensée critique dans son propre pays et dans ceux de la région. La revue NAQD est une revue indépendante de toute autorité gouvernementale. Elle vit principalement de ses ventes en librairie et des abonnements nationaux et internationaux. Manquant de moyens financiers, elle reste vulnérable et exposée à toute initiative visant à rendre impossible son fonctionnement.




Articles published in Eurozine


Alain Joxe

Democracy in ruins

The case of the Middle East and North Africa

Alain Joxe deals with the logic of domination, as played out in the Middle East and North Africa right up until the era of financial globalization: in which states and subjects now find themselves caught between managed militarism and the immaterial mastery of credit. [more]

Hartmut Elsenhans

Democratic revolution, bourgeois revolution, Arab revolution

The political economy of a possible success

If the democratic revolutions are to succeed in the Maghreb and Middle East, these nations must find a way of copying East Asia's economic success. The central element is access to the economic fundamentals that will allow citizens to become true democrats. [more]

Ibtissam Bouachrine

Rjal and their queens

The Arab Spring and the discourse on masculinity and femininity

Aware of the West's preoccupation with the situation of women in Muslim countries, Arab media have shown women playing a lead role in the uprisings. But chauvinism among the protesters suggests these revolutions will benefit women no more than previous ones. [more]

Ghania Mouffok

Algeria: A country in search of its movement

A brief account of the Years of Fire

In Algeria, the uprising is being kept down by political propaganda and police brutality. Ghania Mouffok describes the deep anger of a population that has been living under a state of emergency since 1992, asking whether the street can join with the liberal elite to depose the corrupt and complacent government. [more]

Ghania Mouffok

The Revolution will take place from 11 o'clock until noon

"If that's a march for change, then I have one of those every day!" In Algeria, unhealed social conflicts make a united front an unlikely proposition: to the advantage of the despotic regime. Ghania Mouffok listens to protesters but hears little revolutionary optimism. [more]

Saïd Belguidoum

The transformations of the second era of immigration

A chronicle of the "forgotten" inhabitants of Cassis

In the 1960s, a group of unemployed Tunisian workers near Marseilles, finding themselves homeless, established a makeshift settlement that survived until 2005. Saïd Belguidoum reconstructs everyday life in this successful example of informal accommodation. [more]

Thinking in times of change

http://www.eurozine.com/blog/in-defence-of-freedom-of-expression/
There are both differences and similarities between the current events in Ukraine and the revolutions of 1989. In fact, the conference "Ukraine: Thinking Together" does have a predecessor: a meeting of eastern European intellectuals with their western counterparts that took place in Vienna in 1990. [more]

http://www.eurozine.com/comp/focalpoints/democracy.html
At a time when the global pull of democracy has never been stronger, the crisis of democracy has become acute.

[more]

Russia in global dialogue

http://www.eurozine.com/comp/focalpoints/eurocrisis.html
In the two decades after the end of the Cold War, intellectual interaction between Russia and Europe has intensified. It has not, however, prompted a common conversation. The focal point "Russia in global dialogue" seeks to fuel debate on democracy, society and the legacy of empire. [more]

http://www.eurozine.com/comp/focalpoints/eurocrisis.html

William E Scheuerman
Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

Olga Tokarczuk
A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]

Literary perspectives special: Witold Gombrowicz

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2013-08-16-kuisz-en.html
The recent publication of the private diary of Witold Gombrowicz provides unparalleled insight into the life of one of Poland's great twentieth-century novelists and dramatists. But this is not literature. Instead: here he is, completely naked. [more]

Europe talks to Europe

http://www.eurozine.com/comp/europetalkstoeurope.html
Nationalism in Belgium might be different from nationalism in Ukraine, but if we want to understand the current European crisis and how to overcome it we need to take both into account. The debate series "Europe talks to Europe" is an attempt to turn European intellectual debate into a two-way street. [more]
