Abstract

Abstract

Fluctuante et protéiforme, la culture peut être source de conflit autant que d’identification, riche de ses influences ou bien porteuse d’une mémoire difficile à révéler. Ce volume, au travers de huit textes pluridisciplinaires, porte un regard sur cet espace de jonction et d’articulation entre art et patrimoine qui compose la culture. Les croisements ne se font jamais sans heurts ni frictions ; ils sont également le creuset de nouvelles narrations, qui rendent singulière chaque histoire. Par le biais des deux entités que sont les processus de patrimonialisation et les pratiques de la création artistique, le présent ouvrage traite des questions de mondialisation, d’adoption ou de rejet des influences ainsi que des rapports de domination Nord-Sud. Il montre également comment certains territoires désemparés, par le prisme des arts et des actions collectives, sont ré-imaginés et patrimonialisés. Tout cela ne va pas sans opérer des choix destinés à constituer et à colporter une histoire, une mémoire. Cette conservation des sources mémorielles ne pourrait exister sans les institutions ni les musées qui, pour servir un discours, sélectionnent, exposent ou, au contraire, occultent. Mais que penser de la constitution de patrimoines quand ils sont le fruit d’une amnésie sélective ?

Abstract

This open access book analyses the domestic politics of African dominant party regimes, most notably African governments’ survival strategies, to explain their variance of opinions and responses towards the reforming policies of the EU. The author discredits the widespread assumption that the growing presence of China in Africa has made the EU’s task of supporting governance reforms difficult, positing that the EU’s good governance strategies resonate better with the survival strategies of governments in some dominant party regimes more so than others, regardless of Chinese involvement. Hackenesch studies three African nations – Angola, Ethiopia and Rwanda – which all began engaging with the EU on governance reforms in the early 2000s. She argues that other factors generally identified in the literature, such as the EU’s good governance strategies or economic dependence of the target country on the EU, have set additional incentives for African governments to not engage on governance reforms.
