L'Afrique des Inégalités : où conduit l'histoire


Author Info

  • Cogneau, Denis


En Afrique, au sud du Sahara, les différentes strates de l'histoire longue se sont accumulées pour faire de cette région celle où les inégalités de ressources et de conditions d'existence sont les plus élevées du monde. Dans les deux dernières décennies, la faillite des institutions extractives héritées de la colonisation, puis la vague de démocratisation ont contraint les nations africaines à affronter ces inégalités. La fragmentation de l'espace et le dualisme des sociétés ont conduit à une ethnicisation clientéliste du jeu politique et aux conflits que l'on observe aujourd'hui. Étudiant l'histoire de la construction de ces inégalités et plusieurs exemples contemporains, Denis Cogneau souligne le poids de l'héritage inégalitaire, tout en montrant qu'il ne constitue pas une fatalité.
