Project „Dynamics of Solidarity on Madagascar“ (DySoMa)

The successful solution of a major political crisis between 2009 and 2014 on the island of Madagascar confirms an important finding: That of a successful transition from war to peace throughout the 20th century. How to explain the neglected but exceptional development of this country with its current population of about 25 million inhabitants?

This research project sets out to find the answers under the title “Dynamics of Solidarity on Madagascar”. Financed by the European Union, the investigation is coordinated by the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg (Germany). At the center of the two-year fieldwork will be the newly founded Committee for National Reconciliation and the dynamics of popular justice (dina). The exploration of the normative concept of solidarity (fihavanana) and the long-term historical development related to conflict and conflict solution issues are another important aspect studied.

How to explain war and peace? The study aims to find answers by elaborating a case study of the successful implantation of a culture of consensus and to offer an unusual contribution to the urgent discussion of the conditions for conflict and conflict solution.

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Framework Program for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 (2014-2020) under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No. 702497 – DySoMa
