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.

Conférence – Soudan, causes et conséquences des conflits

Forum réfugiés-Cosi reçoit Marc Lavergne, directeur de recherche au CNRS, spécialiste du Soudan pour une conférence partage et expertise à l’IEP de Lyon.

Le Soudan, plus vaste pays d’Afrique depuis son indépendance en 1956 jusqu’à la sécession du Sud en 2011, est depuis l’origine en proie à des conflits autour des questions d’unité nationale et de partage des ressources. L’accaparement du pouvoir et des ressources par une minorité privilégiée, au détriment des périphéries du pays sont à l’origine ou au cœur de ces conflits.

Dans ce contexte, la jeunesse n’a souvent pour seule issue que de fuir à l’étranger. En 2016, le Soudan était le premiers pays d’origine des demandeurs d’asile en France. Marc Lavergne apportera un éclairage sur les causes des conflits, les acteurs en présence et les raisons de cet exil.

Lieu: Science Po Lyon | Amphi Leclair | 14 avenue Berthelot, 69007 Lyon

Horaires: 18h-20h

Date de début : 27/02/2017

PUBLICATION – « La caserma e la moschea Militari e islamisti al potere in Sudan », by Giorgio Musso

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to announce the following publication (in Italian):

La caserma e la moschea

Edizione: 2017

La contrapposizione tra apparati militari e movimenti islamisti è uno dei temi ricorrenti della storia contemporanea del mondo arabo. Il Sudan ha costituito l’unica eccezione a questa consolidata rivalità, grazie alla spregiudicatezza del carismatico Hasan al-Turabi, architetto del colpo di Stato che nel 1989 ha dato vita a un’insolita coalizione tra militari e islamisti. Il regime sudanese, tuttavia, non è riuscito a rappresentare un’“alternativa islamica” rispetto al modello autoritario dominante nel mondo arabo, ma ne ha assunto i caratteri violenti e alienanti. Esacerbando le fratture identitarie, esso si è spinto fino a compromettere l’unità del paese, rotta dalla secessione del Sud nel 2011. Ricostruendo una storia poco nota, il volume offre un punto di vista originale su quell’intreccio tra islamismo, conflitti armati e aspirazioni democratiche che costituisce la cifra della politica araba attuale.

Transient student in CEDEJ Khartoum – Max MUNCH

CEDEJ Khartoum is currently hosting Max Münch, a student in Anthropology at the University of Bayreuth. For his Master’s thesis, he conducted three months of fieldwork in a Quranic school in Northern Kordofan. In an immersive process, the research was based upon the multi-sensorial focal points of didactics, socialization and embodied knowledge. He participated in the daily learning routine to get access to the social and experiential ways of teaching, learning and knowing.

DOCTORAL SEMINAR – Democracy and political parties in the Arab World – Case study: Sudan and Lebanon, by Azza Mustafa

Monthly Seminar at CEDEJ Khartoum

Next Monday 23rd January 2017

 CEDEJ Khartoum is very pleased to welcome

 Azza Mustafa Mohammed Ahmed, University of Khartoum

Who will present her PhD research on

 Democracy and Political Parties in the Arab World. Case Study: Sudan and Lebanon

 Abstract

The present research examines democracy in the Arab World with an emphasis on comparing democracies in both of Sudan and Lebanon. It analyses the variance and similarity between the two cases; and identifies the political, social and cultural reasons and factors that led to the hindering of establishing democracy in Sudan in contrast to its relative success in Lebanon. The research examines the role of political parties and their discourses are compatible with their social and political objectives.
