“L’échec des politiques du Premier Ministre Abiy Ahmed pour endiguer les conflits ‘ethniques’ en Ethiopie”

Par Jeanne Aisserge Résumé.Les violences intercommunautaires croissantes en Éthiopie sont souvent attribuées aux activistes radicaux pro tant de l’ouverture démocratique prônée depuis près d’un an et demi par le nouveau Premier ministre Abiy Ahmed. Cependant, l’examen critique et sur le terrain des politiques menées par son gouvernement révèle non seulement leur ambiguïté et leur non aboutissement formel, mais aussi le recours moins o ciel à des pratiques inquiétantes comme la mobilisation de jeunes miliciens sur des bases ethniques, alimentant la confusion générale sur le … Continuer la lecture de “L’échec des politiques du Premier Ministre Abiy Ahmed pour endiguer les conflits ‘ethniques’ en Ethiopie”

“A revolution in the neighborhood ? The battle for local power has begun” – Lucie Revilla – 4 September

  This presentation aims to discuss the first findings of a research on the consequences of the revolution at the local scale and more specifically in different popular neighborhoods of Greater Khartoum in terms of political and social dynamics.

“Colonial and postcolonial politics of religion and ethnicity: Making capitalist economy of local elites in Kassala, Eastern-Sudan” – by Abdaljbr Alhaj Mustafa – 2 October 2019

Abstract: For two centuries, Kassala has been the stronghold of the Khatmiyya order, the religious wing of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) which has historically dominated, with the other sectarian party (UMMA), all democratic periods in postcolonial Sudan. Kassala also represents the historical stronghold for most of the Bejawi Nazrats (Native administrations). Religion and ethnicity in Kassala are apparently the most important institutions upon which the colonial indirect rule, that came to be known in postcolonial Sudan “the local governance”, has been depended.  Starting from … Continuer la lecture de “Colonial and postcolonial politics of religion and ethnicity: Making capitalist economy of local elites in Kassala, Eastern-Sudan” – by Abdaljbr Alhaj Mustafa – 2 October 2019

‘Armed Work and State Reconstruction in South Sudan: Beyond the Peace Deal’

By Nicki KINDERSLEY  Summary: This paper examines the state of demobilization and security sector reform in South Sudan’s current fragile peace. It outlines the military-security reconstruction work of both the South Sudan government and its armed opposition, which is currently happening outside (and in defiance of) the peace agreement’s terms and control. The paper also sets out current critiques of the peace deal’s security and military provisions: that a ‘payroll peace’ that is structured around buying out military factions is incentivizing rebellion-for-profit and further … Continuer la lecture de ‘Armed Work and State Reconstruction in South Sudan: Beyond the Peace Deal’
