“The Maghreb in Transition” is a multilateral and interdisciplinary research project between the Universities of Sousse and La Manouba in Tunisia, the Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah and Mohammed V. University in Morocco and the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Germany. The partnership is sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service and the German Federal Foreign Office.
The project creates an originary platform for transnational and cross-border research, bringing together young scientists from Germany, Morocco and Tunisia. The research group focuses is on the role of media and the interplay of knowledge and power – or of science and politics – in political transformation processes.
The group comprises practitioners of cultural studies, political science, law, communication and gender studies. Our interdisciplinary not only strengthens the quality of the project, but promotes the regional and transnational cooperation between universities in the Global North and the South.
