Awled Amreeka?

It is Ramadan 2015 in Tunisia, and it is a tough one. Falling in July, seemingly endless scorching days are filled with children who long for something—anything—to do, and parents with no energy to entertain them. The saving grace is that ...

نمر النمر أكثر من رجل دين شيعي

[صورة الشيخ نمر النمر. ]

الشيخ المعارض نمر النمر كرر على المنابر ضرورة الالتزام بسلمية التظاهر، وشدّد على نزع أي بُعدٍ مذهبي عن المطالب المحقة لسكان المناطق الشرقية في السعودية، وعلى ضرورة إعطائهم بعضاً من حقوقهم. ولم يتردد يوماً في القول بأن الظلم هو نفسه سواء مورس من قبل الشيعة أو السنة، ومن ناصر ظالماً فما هو إلا بظالم، ولعل خطبته الشهيرة الذي يضع فيها آل سعود وآل خليفة وآل الأسد ومن على شاكلتهم في الخانة نفسها أكبر مثال على ذلك. كل ذلك لم ينفع. فبعد اعتقاله منذ سنتين وبعد إطلاق النار عليه (مما تسبب له بإعاقة دائمة في قدمه)، واستمرار محاكمته طوال سنتين، اتهم النمر بتهمتين مفاجئتين: التعرض لقوى الأمن السعودي، والدعوة إلى التظاهر، وحكم عليه بالإعدام تعذيرا. لكن النقاش هنا لا يخص ظلم ...

Decoding an Urban Myth: An Inquiry into the Socio-Economics of Van Number 4 in Beirut

It has been called a #lifestyle on social media (#اسلوب_حياة). The van number 4 has become a social phenomenon, as well as an economic one. Here, we call it an intersection between contradicting places where strangers from different classes share the journey from the informal area of Hay el-Sellom in south Beirut to the cosmopolitan neighborhood of Hamra in the Lebanese capital, and back. In most third world countries, informal public transit pervades the urban fabric. The need to move within the city has given rise to private “informal” services to compensate for the absence of an adequate public transportation system. In many cases, this sector is proving to be a ...

[Le Cardo maximus de la ville romaine à Tipaza, Algérie. Image par Jean-Pierre Dalbéra/Flickr]

Dès les débuts de la décennie 2000, le patrimoine s’impose dans le débat public. Il fait l’objet d’une rencontre annuelle organisée généralement le 16 avril ; une date qui correspond à la fête du savoir, Aïd el Ilm en arabe, que les autorités locales organisent généralement dans les grands hôtels[1], selon des dispositions particulières, comme l’inaccessibilité au grand public[2]. Le mystère pèse autour de ses rencontres qui n’ont pas l’air d’enrichir le débat sur le patrimoine. Pour les pouvoirs publics comme pour les architectes, les ingénieurs et les universitaires invités de la manière la plus énigmatique qui puisse être, ces rencontres sont l’occasion ...
