Ben Gardane, une marge au centre des réseaux marchands mondialisés en Tunisie

Abstract : The notion of the network is widely used in migration studies and in the research on globalisation processes today. This paper proposes to add to existing research by investigating the centrality of marginalised spaces, in this case the Tunisian border regions, in the construction of transnational networks. Based on the case of Ben Gardane, a Tunisian town close to the Libyan border in a region characterised by social, economic, and spatial marginality, this paper explores the emergence of a transnational trade hub and financial centre through the prism of its relationships. First, from a diachronic perspective, it analyses the structures of market relations and their progressive internationalisation that have transformed this small town into one of the main hubs of transnational trade in Tunisia. The second part engages in a network analysis in order to highlight the centrality of this particular market place within the wider network of Tunisian markets
