Political Economy of Development in the Middle East and North Africa

S2 2020-2021, 6ECTS

Cours ouvert à l’ensemble des étudiants de PSL

Enseignement assuré par le Pr. Ishac Diwan (PSL, Chaire Socio-économie du Monde arabe) et le Pr. El Mouhoub Mouhoud (Université Paris-Dauphine)

The course aims to provide graduate students with an introduction to the key debates in social science research that can guide policy-making in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region. More than five years after the spark of the Arab uprisings, the MENA region faces unprecedented challenges. The lack of progress in political and economic governance, conflicts, and unresolved development challenges underlie slow economic growth, high unemployment – especially among youth and women – and a system of crony capitalism that is increasingly narrower and less performing. This course aims to provide graduate students with a good understanding of the development challenges of the region and its complex political economy, with the aim of supporting policy-making at all levels – national, local, and among civil society groups, and along several socio-economic domains.

Ce cours aura lieu sur le site Ulm en salle de conférence, le jeudi de 15h à 17h.

Le premier cours se tiendra le 21 janvier 2021. Les dates prévisionnelles des autres séances sont les suivantes : 28 janvier, 4-11-18 février, 4-11-18-25 mars, 1-8-15 avril.
