[Introduction En Anglais]

The year 2011 witnessed massive wave of social movements, transnational in scope but especially intense in the MENA region and the Mediterranean area, one of which precipitating factors has been the leading role of youth generations and the urban middle classes. The year began with the Tunisian revolution, continued with massive social movements in other MENA and Mediterranean countries, for example the ‘# spanishrevolution’ of 15-M. Young actors in larger and smaller social movements are not a homogeneous group. Their strategies, actions, concepts of social change and democracy vary considerably, to the point where some of their discourses and tactics may appear contradictory. Throughout Mediterranean it’s possible to recognize self-organized direct democracy outside formal institutions, expert activism and mobilisers of protest democracy. Young actors in social movements aim to construct and create new autonomous spaces and places which permit actors to live according to their own principles, to knit different social relations, to express their subjectivity and live and experience that “other world is possible”.


This session aims to shed light on the nature, different historical roots and cultural backgrounds, causes and recent drift of such movements from the young activists’ perspectives. This panel will focus on the features, outcomes, strength, challenges and limits of youth activism in social movements, emphasizing its subjective dimensions, its concrete outcomes and its stance towards institutional politics.


Association Pontes Tunisie has invited three activists from civil society in France, Italy and Tunisia to speech on “The youth of the Mediterranean between apathy and « revolutions » – Issues of politics and citizen participation”. These speeches will open the session.
