Many studies focus on the impact of direct democracy in politics. More and more countries institutionalized tools of direct democracy in order to give stronger legitimacy to political decisions. At the same time, many governments resist the institutionalization of such procedures as if they contradicted the principles of representative government. At the local level, the situation seems to be less dramatized.
The Tunisian-Mediterranean Association for Historical, Social and Economic Studies (TMA for HSES) & The Tunisian World Center for Studies, Research and Development (TWC for SRD) will organize the thirteenth International Symposium around the theme: “Delinquency, Crimes and Repression in History”, on December 17, 18, and 19, 2020.
Thinking ‘Europe’ as an idea, a geographical space, and a political force is inseparable from thinking about its history of imperialism, its postcolonial legacies, and its preoccupation with questions of in and outside, centre and periphery, the self and the other.

Le Réseau des Géographes Libertaires (RGL) est fondé en 2010 pour faire le lien entre monde académique et mouvement social en privilégiant une entrée analytique spatiale, territoriale et environnementale. Ce réseau entend relier la science géographique et les approches anarchiste et libertaire, ces dernières n'étant pas vues de façon dogmatique mais considérées comme des postures critiques et des pensées libres.
