I was born and grew up in Saint-Priest, close to Lyon.
I studied there and worked as teatcher (secondary schools)
From 2002, I also work for an historical monument in Paris.
Maps and History put together really improves teaching skills.
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.
