Is it possible to examine aspects of gender relations on all shores of the Mediterranean? That is what this report aims to do, with articles by eight independent networks (Arablog, Babelmed, Frame, Inkyfada, MadaMasr, Mashallah News, Radio M, Enab Baladi) who address a surprising mosaic of issues such as: work, with articles on self-management in Turkey and Tunisia, professional practices through the portraits of two women with “male jobs”, an Algerian butcher and a Sardinian miner; the subculture of male violence through four reports on femicide in Italy, divorce in Tunisia, harassment of women journalists in Egyptian media, women's battles in Raqqa; and finally stories of men involved in the fight against violence by using creativity.

Feauture - Cultural independences
The territories of the southern Mediterranean shore, although having already gone through difficult times, have never been so precarious and complex as they are currently. Mediterranean citizens have rarely faced similar challenges and tests. Territories to be discovered in this first Ebticar dossier, produced thanks to the contributions by New Syrian Voices, Visualizing Impact, Mashallah News, Mada Masr and Inkyfada...
Mediterranean: Portraits of a Generation
How do they live, what are their aspirations? What are the difficulties that they have to face? The vast series of investigations on the 20 to 30 year old generation in the Mediterranean tempts to answer these questions. Second tour around Morocco, Egypt, Italy and Spain.
Being in love at 20 years old
They are called, Amal, Lila, Joëlle, Ghania, Celia, Doris… They are 20 years old and live in the Mediterranean. They accepted to meet our journalists to speak about love....and more. Their answers are part of our first series of features on young women in the Mediterranean.
Med Reflection Group: Interviews
Babelmed and the European Cultural Foundation launches a cycle of interviews with artists, creators, cultural operators from the Maghreb and the Middle-east in order to question the dynamics and the relationships created by the Euro-Mediterranean co-operation. This questioning is part of the larger framework of the “Mediterranean Reflection group” implemented by the ECF
Turkey and Europe: will this stressful engagement ever end?
As the first part of the cycle of features entitled “Borders and Margins in the Mediterranean”: a reportage dealing with the complex relationships between Turkey and Europe. In Istanbul, Nathalie Galesne and Mehmet Basutçu questioned these current relationships through interviews of numerous Turkish cultural actors, journalists and artists. This Istanbul trip is the first of a series of reportage carried out in the major Mediterranean cities and realised thanks to the support of the European Cultural Foundation in Amsterdam. To be followed: Cairo, Algiers, Paris, Beirut and Naples.
Islam-the West: beyond representations
On the 5th of May, in the Capitole of Rome, Babelmed organised a public event on the theme “Islam and the West: beyond stereotypes”. The feedbacks in the Italian press and the enthusiasm of the roman public both confirmed the need of exchange and debate between the countries of the Mediterranean. We thereafter publish partially the different interventions of our Journalists’ network during the meeting.
After the Sudanese of Cairo, the Turkey–Europe feature, and the sub-Saharan migrations in Algeria, the investigative series,” “Fringes and Borders in the Mediterranean” supported by the European Cultural Foundation, stops this week in the south of Italy—in Naples. By approaching the parthenopian city by way of immigration, it is possible to discover a city globalized from the bottom up, where the Camorrist phenomenon is still everywhere and the fringes reveal a contradictory city that is “inadvertently tolerant.”
Islam and the West in the Mediterranean: Beyond stereotypes
On the occasion of the Babelmed Editorial team meeting, our Website is organising at the Capitoline together with the City of Rome an International Seminar to think over the symbolic division too often proposed as "Islam and the West". 10 journalists of the Babelmed network will try to go "beyond stereotypes".
