Seminar: Faculty of Economic and Social Studies -Department of Anthropology and CEDEJ Khartoum

Dear all:

We are very pleasured to announce our next Seminar , in collaboration with CEDEJ Khartoum, which will be presented by Dr.Enrico Ille; a social and cultural Anthropologist, under the title :

« The fate of date palms in the northern Sudan’s landscapes of vulnerabilities »

The seminar will be on Wednesday 2/5/2018, 12:00 at Postgraduate Room in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology.

Kindly find below an Abstract of the presentation.

Looking forward to see you all there!

The fate of date palms in the northern Sudan’s landscapes of vulnerabilities
Dr. Enrico Ille, in collaboration with Mohamed Salah

(Vulnerability, as being accessible to harmful acts without having adequate defence, is neither spatially nor temporally monolithic. Humans and other living beings are, for instance, variably exposed to potential or actual harm, i.e. the loss of something that is relevant for well-being. In addition, experienced harm can influence the expectation of harm and vice-versa, which informs a very specific, intersubjective or even individual situation and perception of vulnerability.

In this presentation, the subsequent complex dynamics are described as landscape where different vulnerabilities coincide. This conceptual language is used to discuss socio-ecological developments in northern Sudan, specifically the residential areas around the Third Nile Cataract. The observational focus is on the changing fate of date palms since the beginning of the 20th century. Their socio-ecological status vis-à-vis the human resident population is taken as trace element to qualify what kind of loss occurs when date palms experience harm, i.e. what other vulnerabilities are intertwined with their own vulnerability. This enables to discuss recent threats that became politically charged, such as flodding, fires, pests and pollution, in a way that is both critical and differentiated. By treating neither date palm nor human populations in monolithic terms, retracing vulnerabilities may open alternative perspectives on politico-ecological processes and contribute to adequate responses.)

Publication : Enseigner l’histoire à l’heure de l’ébranlement colonial. Soudan, Égypte, empire britannique (1943-1960)

Le CEDEJ est heureux de vous annoncer la publication de l’ouvrage

 

« Enseigner l’histoire à l’heure de l’ébranlement colonial. Soudan,Égypte, empire britannique (1943-1960) »

Alors que les combats de la Seconde Guerre mondiale achevaient de dissoudre le mythe de la supériorité de l’homme blanc, le Soudan était disputé par ses deux maîtres officiels, la Grande-Bretagne et l’Égypte. Le territoire s’acheminait-il vers l’indépendance ou une union politique avec son voisin méditerranéen ? La rivalité anglo-égyptienne, couplée à un impérialisme britannique soucieux de « préparer » les sociétés africaines à la souveraineté nationale, déboucha sur l’unification hâtive du Nord et du Sud-Soudan en 1947. Parvenues à des positions de pouvoir une décennie avant l’indépendance (1956), les élites du Nord s’attachèrent à faire du Soudan, pays à forte pluralité ethnolinguistique et religieuse, un État-nation arabe et musulman.

Dans ce contexte, un nouvel enseignement d’histoire fut élaboré pour les écoles élémentaires soudanaises. Quels en étaient les acteurs, les récits, les pratiques ? Cet ouvrage décortique les représentations, les apprentissages et les rapports sociaux sous-tendant la production et l’usage de manuels en langue arabe dans le Soudan colonial tardif. L’auteure propose également un éclairage comparatif sur l’histoire enseignée dans d’autres territoires de l’empire britannique en voie d’émiettement.

Ce livre offre de nouvelles clés de compréhension d’une séquence charnière dans l’histoire du monde contemporain. Au regard de l’actualité plus récente, il montre quel rôle l’histoire scolaire a pu jouer dans l’éclatement du cadre national soudanais après 1956, aboutissant à la scission du Soudan en deux États en 2011.

 

Iris Seri-Hersch est maître de conférences au Département d’études moyen-orientales (DEMO) d’Aix-Marseille Université et rattachée à l’Institut de recherches et d’études sur les mondes arabes et musulmans (IREMAM). Ses travaux portent sur l’histoire contemporaine du Soudan et de l’espace israélo-palestinien.

 

European migration policies: the case of the EUTF in Sudan

Dear All,

We are very pleased to announce CEDEJ Khartoum next Seminar :

Vladimir Cayol

“European migration policies: the case of the EUTF in Sudan”

Wednesday 25 April, 3pm

CEDEJ Khartoum

Summary: In 2015, during the La Valetta Summit, which gathered leaders of the 28 States of the European Union and about fifty African leaders, the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Junker announced the launch of the Emergency Trust Fund for Africa. The European Trust Fund, financed by 3.4 Billion euros, aims at “addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement”, protecting migrants along the migratory roads, and fighting against criminal networks which organize illegal migration. More than two years later, what does the Sudanese case reveals in terms of EU migration policies implementation? Sudan stands in a very special place in the Horn of Africa when it comes to migration trends. Situated between Eastern Africa and the Arab world, Sudan is crossed by many migrants whose desire is to reach the European shores. In a broader perspective, as a country of transit, departure, and even destination for migrants from the Horn of Africa or beyond, Sudan has become an key partner for the European countries. From a fieldwork conducted between September 2017 and April 2018 in Khartoum, I will examine the implementation of this financial tool in order to offer a better understanding of the policies implemented by the European Union in Sudan.

 

Vladimir Cayol is a master student in the field of Africa and the Middle East International and International Cooperation at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. He has been in intern in CEDEJ Khartoum where he has been working on migration issues these last months.

Migration and appropriation of space: the case of Syrians in Khartoum

Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce CEDEJ Khartoum next Seminar, April 9, 3pm, at CEDEJ Khartoum:

Mathieu ROBAIN

« Migration and appropriation of space: the case of Syrians in Khartoum »

 CEDEJ Khartoum

Monday 9th of April

3:00 pm

Summary

Since the rise of the rebellion against Bashar el Assad in 2011, Syrian people have become one of  the most important refugees population in the world. These displaced people within Syria are fleeing to borders countries or Europe at a growing pace, hoping for a better life and at the same time hopeful for the end of the conflict. Sudans policy towards the Syrian refugees is very unique as it is one of the few countries to welcome them without restrictions. The friendly policies of the Sudanese government include not needing a visa, and being capable of opening shops and restaurants, which is extremely difficult for other refugees populations living within Khartoum. Because of this open policy the number of Syrians seeking refuge in Sudan is evermore increasing since 2013-2014 (the current estimate of the Syrian population is between 100 000 and 200 000 people according respectively to the government and the UNHCR). The fact they are not considered as refugees but as « brothers and sisters » involves many issues about the way they anchor to the space and organize social life, very different from others countries both arabic and western where they’re very often cooped up in camps or judged undesirable.

This research project hinges around the stories of Syrian people mostly located in Khartoum, the capital city, and especially in Riyad and Kafuri. It considers the migration not only as a movement from one country to another, but also as a way of dealing with the host society. It focuses on the spatial and social dynamism the Syrians add to these neighborhoods. As well as the representation they have within Sudan, the places where they live and work, and how they interact with each other and the host society. It leads to ask the question the denominations we give to the « Syrian people » in Khartoum  (are we talking about a community ? a diaspora ? a simple group ?).

When religion opens doors to migration The case of Islamic Universities Students in Khartoum

Dear All,

« When religion opens doors to migration

The case of Islamic Universities Students in Khartoum »

 CEDEJ Khartoum

Wednesday 4th of April

3:00 pm

Summary

The migration of Muslim African elites in the Arab-Muslim world to get formation in Islamic sciences or on the way to the Hajj is an old tradition. The religious education has also been an instrument for the Da’wa (Islamic call). Young Muslims from African countries educated in the Arab world go back home as Cheikhs and Imams. Sudan is a key place in this migration process not only because of his geographical situation but also his double status as an Arab and African country. 

In 1977 al-Merkaz al-Islami al-Ifriki (Islamic African center) was created in Khartoum. The Merkaz was a secondary school that offered only Islamic courses. In 1991 the Merkaz was upgraded as university and became the International University of Africa. This update was the first step in a new trend for the Islamic education in Khartoum. The term ‘islamic’ disappeared from the name and new faculties in modern sciences were created. Nowadays the university is still  in expansion. This shows the will to build a Muslim youth able to be integrated in the modern society while keeping an Islamic morality. This also correspond to the will of an African Muslim youth to be graduated in modern and technical sciences to contribute to the developpement of their country. Through a network of Muslim schools and organizations, Khartoum proposes these opportunity around the continent.

Khadidja Medani is a Master 2 student in Geography at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. HShe is affiliated to CEDEJ Khartoum and her research was conducted within the programm « Be Sudanese, muslim and Arab » financed by the Francophone University Agency (coord. by prof. Barbara Casciarri).

Seminar : Cotton, Sugar, and Alfalfa: Changing Patterns of Agricultural Development in Sudan

We are very pleased to announce CEDEJ Khartoum next Seminar, on 26 February, at 3:00pm at CEDEJ Khartoum
Stefano Turrino

‘Cotton, Sugar and Alfalfa : Changing Patterns of Agricultural Development in Sudan »

CEDEJ Khartoum 
March 26
3:00 pm
Stefano TURRINI (1989) is a Phd candidate in Geography at the University of Padova, Italy. Before the Phd, he graduated in ‘Local Development’. His research is part of a longstanding interest of the Department of Geography in Padova about agriculture in arid and semi-arid areas, especially in the Sub-Saharan Africa.
Summary:
The importance of agriculture in Sudan is manifest. In this country, large-scale agricultural development dates back to the British colonial rule: the Gezira scheme started to produce cotton for the British textile industry in 1925, after the completion of the Sennar Dam on the Blue Nile. The Sudanese state, which became independent in 1956, built the Roseires Dam in 1966 with the aim of expanding the scheme: the Managil Extension made the Gezira cover nearly one million hectares of land. Nowadays, it is one of the largest agricultural schemes under a single administration in the world. In the 1970s, Sudan improved its domestic food production and expanded and diversified the exports. The goal was to become the ‘breadbasket of the Arab world’, benefiting from the funding of the Arab oil-producing countries. The importance of food crops became more prominent than before in Sudan. Especially sugar played a key role in that period: the state approved the construction of many agricultural schemes for the cultivation of sugarcane and sugar factories. Nowadays alfalfa is taking a leading role in the development of a new frontier of agricultural development in Sudan benefiting of a vibrant business environment in the Country.
What are the similarities and the differences among the production systems which are required by these crops (cotton, sugar and alfalfa). What is their impact on the local territory? Stefano will try to answer these questions by taking advantage of his fieldwork and the existing literature.

Conflict Research Fellowship – 2018

The Conflict Research Fellowship (CRF) offers year-long support for experienced scholars (based at a university or NGO). The CRF is part of the Conflict Research Programme (CRP), a four-year, UK Department for International Development-funded research program based at the London School of Economics and Political Science that investigates the drivers of violent conflict in five cases: Somalia, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, and Syria. The program focuses on ways in which the political economy of public authority helps to explain the persistence and spread of violence. Successful fellowship candidates will need to examine how different interventions affect violent conflict and/or the risk of renewed violent conflict; analyze « what works » to counter drivers of conflict; and explore the contextual factors that affect the efficacy of such interventions, including the linkages among international, national, state, and local level dynamics. Successful candidates will contribute to the overall analysis of conflict through case studies of external interventions in four areas prioritized by the program:
1.     Civil society support (including multi-scalar peacemaking and peacebuilding activities, support for reconciliation, and community-level dialogue and mediation)
2.     Security and justice sector reform (including disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, reintegration, and resettlement programs [DDR/RR]; stabilization; regional security networks/arenas; and transitional, formal, and customary justice)
3.     Strengthening public authority and legitimacy, including at sub-national levels (the political marketplace, the effects of patronage networks on governance, governance promoting interventions, decentralization, and anti-corruption activities)
4.     Resource management (including settlement of land and real estate disputes, governance frameworks, and the role of natural resource competition in shaping public authority)
Terms
·       Completed online application form
·       Updated CV
