SEMINAR – Syrians in Khartoum, by Alice Koumurian and Vivian Hartlief

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to organize a seminar on Sunday, May 7th, 2 pm, on Syrians in Khartoum by Alice Koumurian and Vivian Hartlief.

Alice Koumurian, Project officer in CEDEJ Khartoum, will present her research :

« Sudan: a Destination Country? The Case of Syrians Who Have Arrived After 2011 in Khartoum »

Summary :

Situated in the Horn of Africa, Sudan is at the heart of a particularly complex migration system. Sudan is affected by large influx of Eritrean, Ethiopian, Somali and South Sudanese migration flows. Furthermore, it is equally affected by large-scale internal displacements and therefore must face possible departure of its own citizens.

This study focuses on a particular group that recently augmented these flows: that of Syrians who have arrived in Sudan after 2011 and whose profile and aspirations still remain largely unknown. Since Sudan is one of the very few countries still granting them a visa-free entry into its territory, there has been an uninterrupted flow of Syrians to Sudan after the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.

CONFERENCE – « Food Aid, Power and Profit: An historical analysis of the relation between food aid and governance in Sudan », by Susanne JASPARS

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to announce the following event:

« Food Aid, Power and Profit: An historical analysis of the relation between food aid and governance in Sudan »

A conference by Susanne Jaspars

On Monday 6th March, 2017 at 4 PM
at the Faculty of Economic and Social sciences (meeting room) of the University of Khartoum

 Susanne will be presenting some of the key findings of her recently completed PhD research on food aid in Sudan. She studied at Bristol University, with Mark Duffield as her supervisor.  Professor Atta Al-Batahani at the University of Khartoum sponsored the research in Sudan.
 
Using concepts of genealogy and governmentality, Susanne’s thesis explores how food aid regimes of practices have changed over time and their interactions with local governance. It argues that shifts in regimes of practices can be seen as abandoning crisis-affected populations to become resilient to permanent emergency. At the same time, food aid has unintentionally led to a semblance of development for the Sudan government and private sector.

Appel à contributions – PENSER LES RADICALISATIONS RELIGIEUSES (dossier Politique africaine)

« Penser les radicalisations religieuses en Afrique »

coordonné par Roland Marchal (CNRS, Ceri-Sciences-Po)

et Zekeria Ould Ahmed Salem (Université de Nouakchott)

Il n’allait nullement de soi de proposer un dossier à Politique africaine sur les radicalisations religieuses dans un contexte où le monde académique, les médias et les politiques publiques s’en sont déjà largement saisis. Pourtant, c’est justement cette profusion actuelle de discours et de recherches qui constitue le point de départ de ce dossier. Son questionnement porte sur la manière dont la notion de radicalisation, en l’occurrence en Afrique, est abordée dans le champ des sciences sociales.
