The Research Institute on Contemporary Maghreb is a research institution that articulates French and European research on one side and Maghreb research on the other.
For the conduct of its programs, the Institute has a research library in humanities and social sciences. It has a historical heritage of the resources of the Tunisia-Maghreb Documentation Center (1980-1991). Since the creation of the IRMC in 1992, the library has been enriched by a consequent purchase policy and donations from academic institutions, Maghreb and European research facilities and individuals. At present, the library has 30,000 books and pamphlets.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
