Work Context

The TARICA programme (Political and socio-institutional changes in North Africa. Confrontation of models and diversity of trajectories), funded by the European Research Council (ERC), aims to analyse the changes underway in North Africa from the perspective of the diffusion, confrontation and hybridization of various political, societal and economic models, and as a product of the appropriation and reinterpretation that actors make of them. The aim is to grasp the way in which different public, private and associative actors position themselves in the spaces opened up by the collapse or questioning of authoritarian political systems, and to analyse their strategies in relation to the reference models and normative repertoires that inspire their actions. The objective is also to identify the factors and processes that make possible (or prevent) the establishment of institutional arrangements capable of managing social diversity, pluralism and conflicts. From this actor-centred approach, we seek to highlight the complex processes that contribute to the diversity of the trajectories followed by the five North African countries directly or indirectly affected by the 'Arab revolts', namely Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and Libya, each of which represents a case study or even a 'model' in its own right. Based on a multidisciplinary and comparative approach, which articulates different levels of analysis, the project proposes to explore these different processes through three complementary lines of research: (i) reconfigurations of the political game and forms of regulation, (ii) transitional justice and models of reconciliation, (iii) models of development and social justice.
