Ivan Krastev

Utopian dreams beyond the border

The refugee crisis has re-opened the gap between East and West. What Europe is witnessing today is not what Brussels describes as a lack of solidarity, but a clash of solidarities: national, ethnic and religious solidarity, writes Ivan Krastev. [Russian version added] [ more ]

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]
