The meeting was devoted to a review of railway cooperation in the Maghreb region and to plans for the future integration of the rail systems of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya and Egypt. Mrs Derbel, who currently chairs the Maghreb Rail Transport Committee, spoke of the progress made with regional cooperation projects, and encouraged the various partners to step up the closer collaboration which would enable joint priority projects to go ahead. The technical experts invited gave presentations highlighting the opportunities for greater interoperability between railways in the region. Whilst the seminar focused on improving railway safety, it also provided an opportunity to discuss and share experience on accident typologies, investment, and global good practice in this area. He welcomed the railwaymen and women of Tunisia and the African Region, and hailed efforts to improve the standard of rail services in the region, especially those aiming to improve safety. He cited some examples of safety improvements around the world, as well as a selection of results and recommendations from the UIC Safety Database SDB , which was created 15 years ago.

To much of the outside world, Tunisia is known equally for its relatively successful democratic transition as for the fact that it boasts the highest ratio per capita of people who have joined ISIS to fight outside their country.
Progress has been made to address several of these matters, but not all, and almost certainly not in a sustainable manner.

Emmanuel Macron, President of the I was very hesitant to come and address you today. Nevertheless, I wanted to honour a tradition and I questioned whether it would be better to stay at the G7, which has just finished; I told myself that the only risk I was running was falling short of the results achieved, of what we had collectively achieved, but I think that this shared moment ahead of the work you are going to carry out has a purpose.
First, because this is the third time that we are meeting in this format and because it is very useful to follow up, and doing so after the G7 which France has just hosted makes even more sense. First to let you know that the success of the G7 is your success, that of the diplomats who organized it, the elected officials who supported it, the teams within the government in numerous departments that were involved in it and demonstrated a great deal of professionalism. We, the heads of state and government, share collective responsibility for any shortfall, any relative failures because we have not made enough progress.

Terrorist Financing and Virtual Currencies: Different Sides of the Same Bitcoin?
This article presents a synthetic map of the spatial dynamics of gentrification in Paris since the s. While the notion of gentrification has given rise to numerous studies since the s, in particular in Britain and North America, very few researchers have focused on the spatial dynamics of this process in a given city, or made attempts to map the phenomenon.
These different sources enable an interpretation of gentrification as a process of spatial diffusion from centre to periphery starting from a historical core in the beaux quartiers of the west of Paris. This confirms the analyses reported by the Anglo-American studies, in which gentrification appears as a process of social conquest taking the form of a pioneer frontier. The aim of this article is to present an original cartography of this process using the example of Paris.
