1년간 2013년에 한국 언어, 역사를 공부했다. 나는 북쪽 동쪽 아시아 역사에 관심이 있다. 역사적 주제 중에서 얼마나 새로운 무기들과 항공기들은 한국 전쟁에 사용되었습니다를 이해하려고 합니다.

 

AMONG MY FIRST MAPS, THE LOCATION OF  KAZAKH STUDENTS LEARNING FRENCH IN THEIR COUNTRY IN 2009.

The issue of maping civil wars.

THE 90 TH DECADE IN ALGERIA DID NOT KEEP ANY PRECISE MAPS OF THE CIVIL WAR. MAPPING THESE UNCLEAR EVENTS WAS A CHALLENGE FOR ME (HISTORICAL ATLAS OF ALGERIE, 2012) BUT I HAD TO AVOID ANY POLITICAL APPROACH;

EVEN IF IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ANDF PRECISE MAPS ABOUT THE WAR LED BY THE ALGERIAN ARMY ON THE INSURGENCY, THE SUBJECT IS STILL SENSITIVE.

 

ALGERIA HAS STILL NOT FOLLOWED THE PATH OF SOME LATINE AMERICAN COUNTRIES OR RWANDA AND BOSNIA WHERE MANY MEETINGS WERE ORGANIZED BETWEEN VICTIMS AND RESPONSIBLE ACTORS.

 

MAPS MAY HELP UNDERSTANDING STRATEGY AGAINST INSURGENCY DURING SUCH ASYMETRIC CONFLICTS.
