Les transformations géopolitiques dans la région MENA : Les dynamiques structurantes
This paper analyses the geopolitical transformations in the MENA region through a multidimensional approach, by calling on: the recent history of the Euro-Mediterranean region; geostrategic challenges where it is not always easy to decide between interests and principles, discourse and action; and on going back to facts, in their descriptive and analytical outline. The author goes beyond the day-to-day analysis of the regional events while he tries to understand the structural dynamics and their underlining causes. The paper is divided into four parts on the following issues: oil wealth in the MENA region, the role of Israel in the Euro-Mediterranean area, modernisation crisis and human security in the light of the Arab present.
The Tunisian Transition: Torn Between Democratic Consolidation and Neo-Conservatism in an Insecure Regional Context
The paper assesses the different phases and achievements of the transition process in Tunisa before looking at the challenges, difficulties and future perspectives. The newly emerging Tunisian political system is analysed in the context of the current developments in the wider MENA region. This paper considers the Tunisian transition as a very particular and unique case, and not as a “model”. Compared to other states in the MENA region, it is the only country where a comprehensive process of democratic consolidation is taking place so far. The hitherto success of the Tunisian transition results from a particular constellation of different factors, suggesting that the perspectives for a long-term democratic transformation process look positive but the challenges remain multifaceted.
