Workshop „Between conflict and solidarity on Madagascar“

Verfasst von

Intensive discussions on issues of conflict and solidarity

A first workshop as part of the DySoMa project was organized at the University of Antananarivo, Department of History, on 28 September 2017, at the Campus Numérique Francophone, by Professor Gabriel RANTOANDRO, supervisor of the DySoMa project, and Peter KNEITZ.

Under the general title „Between conflicts and solidarity on Madagascar“ (Entre conflit et solidarité à Madagascar) the eight participants, mostly PhD candidates of the Department of History, discussed various aspects of past and ongoing developments related to war, peace and consensus building in Madagascar. The contributions were related to different regions of Madagascar, e.g. the south-east coast, east coast and the center, and the respective local social-identity formations (Antemoro, Betsimisara, Merina).

Case studies presented data on representations of solidarity, based upon common ancestry, at the example of the Tsimiamboholahy group (Raivolala RAVELISON), and the possible conflicts involved, as the Zanakantitra exemple revealed (Sandra RAKOTOARISOA).

Other contributions exposed the problems of identity formation in between the Betsileo and Merina territory (Roland RAKOTOVAO), the study of an institution of conflict regulation, the teny andragnobe (by Hajarisaina RAMANANJARA), or the the integration of „untouchable“ children through school teachers during the colonization period (Felandzohany RAZANAKOLONA).

An analysis of the Antemoro region allowed to gain insights in a particular conflict-ridden part of Madagascar (Nathalie RAJAONASIVELO and Gabriel RANTOANDRO), whereas Peter KNEITZ directed the attention of the participants to the ongoing and new process of national reconciliation by the recently created institution „Conseil du Fampihavanana Malagasy, CFM“.

A general discussion allowed to arrive at a preliminary synthesis.

A nice dinner at the nearby restaurant „La toque enchantée“ allowed the participants to refresh and to close a long  but great and inspiring day of presenting, listening and discussing the respective contributions. The work will continue, though, as the contributions are planned to be published in the course of next year as collective volume.


The participants

We would like to say in behalf of all participants „Misoatra tompoko!“ to Ms RAKOTOMALALA, responsable for the „Agence Numérique Francophone d’Antananarivo“, for allowing us to use the facilities of the agency and for the important technical suport!
