In the second episode of the podcast "Talking Papers", we introduce informal work in Tunisia from a sociological perspective via the study "The street of Spain market or the essence of a street economy in Tunisia", carried out in October 2022 by a group of researchers under the direction of the Tunisian Forum for Economic and Social Rights (FTDES).
This empirical work was coordinated by Sofien Jaballah, a PhD holder and university teacher in sociology, who will explain the scientific approach of this research and shed the light on certain concepts that may seem unclear and others that are not well known by the general public.
This collective research analyzes this commercial activity carried out by the vendors of the Street of Spain at the heart of Tunis, using different scientific approaches: sociological, anthropological, cartographical and others, divided into 9 chapters.
This study was published in the context of the Arab Hub for Social Protection, which tries to understand and assess the social protection systems in the Arab world.

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
